Throughout its more than 80 year history, Central's approach to repair has included careful evaluation and the implementation of both corrective and preventive improvements. The company's extensive experience and forensic approach led to the establishment of a professional consulting component in the 1960's – a time of both great technological innovation in the industry and increasing structural deterioration affecting the facades of Chicago's venerable buildings.
Central applies professional engineering and legal expertise in combination with its broad base of knowledge in façade issues to provide unique solutions to the problems of its clients. Central's proposed solutions are typically well analyzed, carefully planned and practical. This approach is particularly helpful in complying with Chicago's façade ordinance. Central's expertise is recognized throughout the industry as are its professionals who are engaged by clients on a fee basis.
