Named Remodeler of the Year by National Association of Home Builders 2016! Michael Menn has been providing architectural and construction services that have exceeded his clients’ expectations since 1977. Michael is a licensed architect in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin and Arizona, and has reciprocity in more than 40 other states. He formed his first architectural private practice in 1983, devoted to small custom residential and commercial projects. Over the years that firm evolved into a diverse architectural, planning, interior design and construction firm. Most companies will list honesty as an attribute, somewhere after quality, experience and maybe even low price. We think honesty is the most important attribute to look for in an architect or construction resource. After all, if you cannot trust these people, you cannot work with them. Our honesty is manifest in the following ways: We do not overpromise. We set realistic expectations and then work hard to exceed them. When you ask our opinion, we will tell you what we think. That is part of what you are paying for. We only work with trades (subcontractors) that share these values. While Michael Menn, Principal of Michael Menn Ltd., has won numerous awards, he is most proud of the award he won for marketplace ethics from the Illinois Better Business Bureau. Of course you should not just take our word for this. Ask our clients.
