We are GEA Architects

Our approach is fundamentally based on ensuring that every project receives our greatest personal attention. We provide our clients with a combination of quality design along with cost effective construction principles.

It is our philosophy that we are providing a service rather than a product, and for this reason we assume the responsibility to generate as many design options as possible throughout our involvement with a project, thus inviting comparisons and input from our clients.


Our History

GEA Architects, Ltd. was founded by our principal, Mr. George Evangelopoulos, in 1989. Our goal is to provide our clients with a combination of quality design and cost effective construction principles.

GEA Architects is proficient in all phases of design, including working drawings, engineering, and construction management. We have produced a vast portfolio of successful projects throughout the greater Chicagoland area and on a national level.

We believe in bringing unique solutions coupled with technical expertise to assist our clients in today’s challenging and evolving construction environment. Our past work experience includes a wide variety of commercial, institutional, industrial, corporate, retail, healthcare and residential projects.

Our professional staff can provide a full breadth of architectural, engineering and construction management services for our clients. We continually strive to stay up to date with the latest design concepts, software, materials, and building codes to provide our clients with the very best that technology has to offer.


Our Mission & Statement

Our mission is to partner with our clients to bring forth their ideas, interpret their visions, and guide their projects to full realization.

Every project has a human factor. Whether you are building a new factory, office for your growing business, or a retail investment property, we know that your project is very personal. You have a vision that you are prepared to invest all of your time, emotion, and resources into seeing through. Selecting the right architect for this endeavor is the most important decision you will make. Your architect is not just a designer. Too many times, architects will put their own pride and portfolio ahead of their client’s best interests. At GEA Architects, we work tirelessly to earn our client’s trust and ensure that you are completely satisfied once your project is complete. We rely on our decades of experience to produce the best possible product for our clients and to protect them from the “nightmares” that come from poor design and project management.

Once you have decided to embark on this exciting journey, we urge you to not venture out alone. GEA Architects will help guide and advise you beginning with the land acquisition or lease agreements, conceptual design and development, construction documents and bidding, and finally construction management. We are eager to meet with you to hear you dreams and ideas, and to partner with you on your project!
