Renken + Associates is the culmination of many years of experience and vision of its founder, Scott Renken, Architect. After graduating from the University of Illinois with a masters degree in architecture, Mr. Renken began his career with Otis Associates, Northbrook where he established himself as a leading designer and Project Manager and ultimately vice-president. Mr. Renken worked with a wide variety of clients including builders, developers, homeowners, corporations and government bodies. Significant projects include The Reserve at the Merit Club, Cotswolds of Northbrook, Royal Ridge, The Woodlands of Darien and numerous others.
In 1996 he co-founded Greystone Builders and Architects Inc., and as President, helped establish Greystone as a Premier custom home builder on the North Shore. Having designed and built over 60 unique homes, Greystone set the standard for elegance and sophistication. Each home was monitored by Mr. Renken through the construction process to assure construction and aesthetic quality.
Renken + Associates continues this fine tradition of top quality design and a construction process with unsurpassed attention to detail and individual attention. Whether it be a small addition or new home, you can be assured that the finished product will meet or exceed all expectations due to the hands-on approach of its principal in every phase. We hand pick our subcontractors based on suitability for the job and budget considerations. Through the architectural design, zoning review and construction phases, having an experienced Registered Architect direct the process insures a quality finished product that combines aesthetics and fine detailing with sound construction.
