posted by Jen

Caulk is a great product when used properly, but very often it’s use exacerbates the issue rather than correcting it. If you have water infiltration issues please give us a call before attempting to make the repairs.

08/07/17 Chicago Water Storage Tank

posted by Jen

Due to recent failures of some aging rooftop water storage tanks on historic Chicago buildings, many Associations are choosing to have them removed if no longer in use. This past weekend we performed construction oversight for the removal of the water storage tank shown below. This particular building was built in 1921 and converted to residences in 2006, which means their water storage tank was almost 100 years old!

posted by Jen

There is a right way and a wrong way to control erosion along the shoreline of a pond. We were informed this stonework was done only a year ago (probably at a significant cost) and it is already failing. How many problems can you see with this construction?

posted by Jen

Happy 4th of July from all of us at J. Hershey Architecture! Did you know that on July 13th JHA staff will be attending CAI Central Florida’s Meet the Managers Event? This sold-out, limited seating event gives business partners a chance to sit down and meet one-on-one with property managers in a “speed dating” format. As a member of multiple CAI Chapters we understand that successful relationships between business partners and management companies helps to ease the daily stress on managers by providing them with a reliable support system.
