FR Review:
Located just outside of Chicago, CHLEBEK Architects has been serving the needs of the metro area since 2000. Focused on traditional and custom design, the firm favors locally sourced materials such as brick, wood and a small amount of concrete. Principal, Chester Chlebek, came to America in 1995 from his home country of Poland (where he received a degree in architecture and engineering). He also has an MBA in Green Design from San Francisco School of Architecture and is LEED Certified. With seventeen years of experience in the United States, Chlebek favors design-build services and green building.

CHLEBEK architecs consists of an architect (Chlebek), an interior designer and a project manager. The company does about five projects at once and equally divides its focus between residential and commercial work. The average residential project is 3,000 square feet, while the average commercial project is 9-10,000 square feet and can range from ground-up design-build to renovations. CHLEBEK architects charges an average hourly and markup over net construction costs.

Project Description & Comments:
Working with Chester was a pleasure. Chester and his crew did amazing job on our home renovation last fall. They seemed genuinely excited about some of our harebrained ideas. We were very happy with the execution, which included lots of different teams coming in and out, all very well organized by Chester. Chester’s crew finishing touches were much appreciated, and included a custom built bookcase instead of a railing and small shelves embedded into our work space.
The whole project was completed almost to the penny we were quoted. CHLEBEK (CH + architect & contractor) were not our lowest quote, but it was by far the most meticulous and thorough.
Thanks for making our soggy, cold, drafty basement into an amazing and comfortable space, complete with sump pump, radiant floor heat. We also really appreciated having guys that we trusted completely sharing our living space for months and being able to communicate freely with them. Can't wait for the next project together.

        Cost of Project: $50,001 - 100,000
