Featured Projects
Suburban Condo Association
Chicago, IL
G3 recently completed a balcony and facade restoration project for a suburban condo association. The project included the repair of the masonry and railings at all 16 balconies’ tiers associated with two, four-story buildings. The scope of work included:

  • Replacing the failing piers and railings at the 4th floor level with new cast stone piers and railings
  • Masonry tuckpointing
  • Brick and stone replacement
  • Re-coating the 4th floor balcony surface
With cost savings generated by our project management team, $111,100 was returned to the association. 
Lakeview High-rise
Chicago, IL
Facade Repairs

G3 was engaged by this Lakeview Condominium Association to investigate water infiltration issues. Investigative openings were made after a series of prototype drops to determine where the water was entering the building from and what repairs would be needed to prevent that from happening. G3 then managed the project repairs which included:
  • steel lintel replacement
  • flashing installation
  • cracked brick/sill replacement
  • tuckpointing
  • sealant replacement throughout all elevations of the building

G3 worked with the masonry contractor to develop the project schedule and phasing plan to complete the project in one year. The project started the first week in March 2020 and was complete by the first week in October 2020. The building was split into 13 drops and had 5 swing stages going at a time.
With cost savings generated by the G3 team, $65,000 was returned to the Association.
