Todd Main, principal of this award-winning firm, says listening to a client, while essential, is not enough. “Our job is not only to listen but also to interpret and to filter a client’s demands and desires through our experience and expertise,” he says. The firm’s projects have ranged from vacation homes to a 10,000-square-foot rehab in Elburn to reconfiguring the interior of a 2,500-square-foot Lake Shore Drive condominium. The firm works on rehabs, remodels, and new construction and is adept at navigating the maze of Chicago building codes.
