J. Hershey Architecture is a premier full service architectural firm that works with property managers and associations to provide Reserve Studies for properties including single family residences, garden-style condominiums, townhomes and high-rise condominiums. We understand each property has a unique set of conditions; therefore, our reports are customized to meet the clients’ needs. Modified report types include Transition Studies and Site plus Clubhouse Studies. Unlike many of our competitors we may provide the design and bid document services for repair work if required.
We are active members of the Community Associations Institute (CAI), the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM - Chicago), the Apartment Building Owners and Managers Association (ABOMA) and the Association of Condominium, Townhome and Homeowner Associations (ACTHA). Architectural/Engineering Consulting work is performed for associations in Chicago and throughout Northern Illinois.

"I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation on your behalf. Your analysis of our current roofing condition was thorough, well documented, and understandable. The Notice to Bidders was extremely detailed. This no doubt encouraged the bidders to perform at their best as they were aware that you were acting as our advocate, and that you would not accept anything less than the highest quality products and labor. Finally your analysis of the bids leveled the playing field and made sure that the data was “apples to apples”.
Perhaps your greatest value to the Board was your attendance at meetings of the Association. It was clear that you knew what you were talking about.Your input has been invaluable."
