About Our Architects
FOSTER | GREEN Design + Build LLC is a partnership between George Foster and Burke Greenwood. The two remodeling contractors decided to join forces due to their shared vision of designing and building high quality, energy-efficient, sustainable custom homes. With over 40 years of industry experience, their collaboration is sure to produce well-built custom homes that will not only reduce operating costs for homeowners but will also soften their impact on our environment.
Our knowledge of the residential construction industry extends well beyond only the design + construction services as we hold many certifications and credentials within the industry including general contractor license, Illinois licensed home inspector, and registered architect, giving us access to knowledge which we bring to each project. This added value knowledge gives us a much broader view of each project when working with the client through the development process. Whether these skills are specifically brought to the project, they will always be in the background of our decision making process and discussions with the client when making important decisions about how the project should progress.
A few of our credentials that we bring to each project include:
- Licensed Architect
- Licensed, Insured, and Bonded General Contractor
- Certified Energy Auditor
- Licensed Real Estate Professional
- Licensed Home Inspector
- Lending Institute ‘Scope of Work’ Audit Provider
With the combination of an architect, their integration and understanding of changes occurring within the energy efficiency industry, award-winning residential construction experience – the team brings expertise in merging the fundamentals of building science and quality construction with the human experience responding to the health, comfort, and aesthetics found in all projects.
