This has been a rewarding 40 years for Eckenhoff Saunders. Our work speaks for itself, and it wildly exceeds all expectations when we opened our doors in 1983. Most importantly, it shows how our clients trust us with challenging projects and continue to invite us to the table as their organizations evolve.

We are a firm built on relationships. Long-standing relationships with clients have sustained us in the various markets we serve. Our diversity and balance is our strength and keeps life interesting in the office. We do not confine ourselves to one specialty and can compete in almost any market.

Our relationships with consulting engineers bolster the technical competence we bring to projects, and in a town known for its culture of “building,” we rely heavily on our relationships with Chicago’s contractors.

Our staff is second to none. It is impossible to consistently produce quality architecture without significant dedication, sacrifice, and hard work – hopefully with some fun thrown in along the way. I am so proud of Eckenhoff Saunders and what we have accomplished together.
