[cBi Story]

Mission Statement:
The cBi design and build team is committed to respecting the highest standards of commercial air conditioning, architectural integrity, tradition, and functional elegance found on the North Shore.

"Make no little plans! They have no magic to stir men's blood."
- Daniel Burnham, 19th-century Chicago Architect

cBi has transformed the knowledge and respect of history's great architects and builders into its own vision to construct period-specific homes that enrich the communities of Chicago's North Shore. Each home is consummately constructed, first in imagination and heart. Then with the zeal and expertise of carefully selected artisans using superior products, the plan is brought to light on a one-of-a-kind address.

Brett, Todd, and Jim Marlowe formed cBi by uniting more than 70 years of building experience with a passion for historical design, quality and dedicated service. More than a decade later the team's enthusiasm continues to grow, as does the number of families who have selected a cBi home on the North Shore as the beautiful context for life's drama.

We invite you to measure your vision with ours.
