For over twenty five years, Fettner Development & Construction Co., has been building high-end commercial, retail, industrial and institutional. Pride ourselves on return clients. Many former commercial clients have come back to us a decade later to renovate or build their newest facility or headquarters.

Some of our recent commercial projects include:-

European Massage Therapy School – Chicago campus
Chai Center of Wilmette
RPMS, Inc. – Chicago Headquarters
Imbibe, Inc. – Skokie facility
Imibibe, Inc. – Niles national headquarters
Papa Willie’s BBQ restaurant
Midway Cannabis Dispensary
Westfield Old Orchard Shopping Center
Chicago Protective Apparel – Office and warehouse renovations
Chicago Protective Apparel – New Facility; +100,000 square foot renovation and construction.
111 East Chestnut – multi unit condominium conversions on Magnificent Mile, Chicago
Khal Ohr Yisocher Chodorov Synagogue
Laurel Park Townhouse development
Winthrop Avenue Apartments – +70 unit apartment building. Chicago, Illinois
Café Croissant Café & Bakery
Prestige Distribution Inc. – Office and warehouse renovations


Our retail projects consist of highly detailed, timeline focused construction in order to maintain the strict deadlines that retail establishments must meet. In retail, time is money, therefore we maintain a construction schedule to mitigate the store closure and ensure that the re-opening happens as fast as possible. On the restaurant end, we continually send our construction professionals to national trade shows staying up to date on the latest trends and tech. Our restaurant build-outs have included fine dining, pubs, carry-out and cafes.


At Fettner, we pride ourselves on transforming a dated, stale office into a fully functional technologically advanced workspace. We have built the national headquarters for many Chicagoland companies, including the national headquarters of Imbibe, Inc., a global beverage innovation company. Fettner was the exclusive builder for the Westfield Old Orchard shopping center, responsible for many medical tenant build-outs at their multi-story Professional Building. When building offices, it’s important to always stay on task and on time, always building with the urgency that the hard deadline is indeed the hard deadline.


Warehouses, cultivation facilities, manufacturing plants, and more. Fettner’s industrial construction spans all across Northern Illinois and covers many different industries. Fettner maximizes your operation’s production and distribution with our renovations custom tailored to your company’s needs. Whether it’s a facility for fire retardant clothing, a pilot plant for beverage innovation, or a food laboratory, Fettner has the specialists to facilitate any and all construction needs.


When building a church, synagogue, massage school, or a dance studio, there are certain details that are different from the typical commercial project. Our institutional clients come to us when they have a detail specific project that necessitates an experienced institutional builder.


Fettner Construction takes the same approach with our multi-family that we do with all of our high-end residential projects. We utilize our land-use and zoning experience to help navigate the different zoning laws and municipal approvals necessary for multi-family development of apartment buildings, multi-story condominium projects, and townhouse developments.
