Dear Client,

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our company.  Below is a brief history of how we started and where we are today.

Neri Architects was started in 1989 when I decided to venture out and start my own practice.  Previously, I worked for 5 years with an established mid-sized architectural firm in Chicago.  During that time, I gained extensive knowledge and experience in both residential and commercial design.

In the early years, Neri Architects was a home based-business offering architectural services as well as construction management services.  In 1993, Neri Architects was incorporated and took on the name of “Neri Architects, pc”(professional corporation).  Our company also took on its first full time employee and moved the business to a small office building in Park Ridge, Illinois.  From our new office location, our business continued to grow, and hired additional staff members.  Most of our projects during those years were custom single-family residences, multifamily developments and small commercial projects.

During that time, we expanded our scope of services to provide construction management, general contracting and design-build services.  This broad scope of services became very attractive to our clients and some significant projects emerged as a result.

In addition to Architectural and Construction, we have also undertaken numerous development projects (Neri Development, Inc.) and have developed many condominium, townhome, and single-family home communities throughout the Chicagoland area.

We have changed locations several times during our company’s history always being in the Park Ridge/Chicago Northwest side area.  However, we have provided services throughout the Chicago metro area and for many out-of-state projects as well.  We are currently licensed in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Indiana and Colorado.

Today Neri Architects, pc. is focused on providing excellent architectural services utilizing state of the art computer software such as AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, and Enscape to perform such services.  In addition, our company’s extensive knowledge and experience in construction and real estate development enables us to take a comprehensive approach to building design, whereby focusing concurrently on the architectural design, constructability, and financial budget to achieve a balanced and successful solution.

I am still involved in the day-to-day operations as our team strives on providing one-on-one client care relationships.  We are committed to excellence in every aspect of our business and we uphold a standard of integrity bound by personal responsibility.  At Neri Architects, we understand what it takes to create structures of timeless quality and beauty; structures that inspire and will make a lasting positive contribution to our environment.

We look forward to working with you on your next project.
