He has honed his technical skill through involvement with the Construction Specifications Institute and the Building Enclosure Council and serves as a mentor for staff throughout the studio. Recently, Eric has led project teams for Artis Senior Living facilities in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood and in Wilmette, Milieu Apartments in the West Loop, and Kenzie Senior Residences in Mount Prospect.
