Civil Engineering Services | Apartment Buildings
Serving clients in Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.
We have seen a huge surge in apartment building projects across all price points, in both the city and suburbs. Recent trends include micro apartments within walking distance of transit stops, adaptive reuse of churches and office buildings, high end apartments near downtown, modest apartments in outlying neighborhoods in the city, high end suburban apartments near Metra stations in the suburbs and affordable apartments in suburbs with good school districts. We’ve also seen a rise in the mixed-use apartment building, replete with dining, shopping and entertainment options all under one roof.
Bono Consulting has been hard at work turning this pent-up demand for apartment space into physical buildings. Our engineers have worked on hundreds of apartment buildings in Chicago and the collar suburbs. Services provided include parking design, building accessibility, stormwater detention, utility tie-ins, and permitting. We have found creative solutions for our clients developing apartment buildings like green roofs or interior stormwater detention, which allow us to maximize the building footprint on-site. Bono Consulting looks forward to helping our clients deliver new and exciting projects.
Eight O Five Luxury Apartments – Chicago, IL
Bono Consulting provided engineering design and permitting for this 34-story residential tower, with retail on the ground and a parking garage. Per the City of Chicago’s stormwater requirements, the design incorporated underground stormwater detention storage between the grade beams of the garage and a green roof. The neighboring alley was redesigned to lower the grade at the alley and meet minimum slope requirements, accommodating various zoning and architectural constraints. ADA access was provided along with water and combined sewer services. The project has been completed and is open for residential touring.
