It Began With An Idea
In the early 1900s, Americans witnessed unprecedented advancements in nearly every area of life. The industries of science, health and medicine were no exception.
Having received his architectural degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Robert Johnstone, our great-grandfather, stumbled across an unexpected need –– hospitals and private medical practitioners scrambling to keep up with the increased demand for their services.
Shortly after, he parlayed his love of building into an architectural firm committed to servicing the medical community with thoughtful design solutions. His goal? Build an integrity-based business he could one day pass on to his two sons.
All In The Family
Like night and day, the two sons ventured into the business with very different interests: One pursued a degree in architecture, while the other found satisfaction working as a painting contractor. Eventually, the brothers shrewdly combined their interests to provide their clients with additional construction-based solutions.
Over the years, the company continued to grow, as each offspring brought his, or her, own unique specialties to the table. As a result, the firm continued to grow, eventually serving new medical, residential and commercial markets.
Back to Our Roots
Four generations later and we’ve expanded upon Robert Johnstone’s original vision to create attractive and functional work spaces. Instead of going through the time (and cost) intensive process of working with 3 different service providers, our clients can now get all their needs met – interior design, architecture and construction – from one qualified team of professionals.
Put simply, we’re not just here to “execute”; we’re here to partner with our clients as a valued advisor through every step of the building process, helping them make the best possible decisions for their unique goals. That is our no. 1 priority –– helping our clients get where they want to go, on time and on budget.
