Projects

We’re proud of the work we do at Eco Tec, often for some of the most well-known brands in the world. Take a look at some of our past projects to see what we can do for you.

Ruth Chris

Ruth Chris asked Eco Tec to insulate the whole building of one of their restaurants, including all the walls and the entire roof deck. The addition of spray foam insulation made the restaurant extremely energy efficient and will save them money through many Chicago winters.

McDonald's

Eco Tec worked with McDonald's to install closed cell spray foam on the entire roof deck of one of its restaurants. This addition of spray foam greatly increased the energy efficiency of the building. A roofing product was installed over the insulation, keeping the spray foam protected from the outdoor elements.

​Illinois Bar Exchange ​

The Illinois Bar Exchange asked Eco Tec to apply spray foam to the first floor front entry of its downtown Chicago location. The spray foam created an air seal that keeps cold air out, greatly improving energy efficiency. The insulation will also help prevent damage to their sprinkler systems.

CVS

Eco Tec insulated one of CVS's Chicago locations, adding open cell spray foam to the first floor rim joists. This insulation eliminated the draft that was created by the stack effect in such a large building. The spray foam also solved a problem they were having with their sprinkler system bursting, after they had spent thousands of dollars over the years on several attempts to correct it.

Trader Joe's

When Trader Joe's opened a new location on Clybourn Street in Chicago, they called Eco Tec to insulate the building. We sprayed the entire roof deck and exterior walls with spray foam, greatly improving energy efficiency.

Renaissance Hotel

Renaissance Hotel asked Eco Tec to install spray foam in one of its locations. We added open cell foam to the exterior walls and roof deck off the front entryway, creating a thermal barrier and keeping hot and cold air from coming into the building. This also protected the sprinkler systems from freezing up and bursting in the cold Chicago winter.

Lifetime Fitness ​

Lifetime Fitness asked Eco Tec to insulate one of their gym locations. We installed closed cell spray foam insulation in the roof and exterior walls of their hot yoga studios and then applied a fire coating over the exposed foam insulation. The yoga studios need and generate a lot of heat and the insulation will help keep the air inside the room.

Brown Shoe Factory Lofts Restoration

The Brown Shoe Factory sat vacant for a number of years. It was on the National Register of Historic Places, so some of the building had to remain original. The challenge was to design a project to preserve the original brick structure, create energy efficient living space, and do that on the uneven brick face of the building. Spray foam insulation was chosen by the architect on this job for the high R-value. Spray foam wouldn’t trap moisture against the brick, creating moisture and flaking issues, solved the energy efficiency needs of the building, and allowed the preservation of this important structure.
