June Projects in the Windy City

Posted by Flyhouse on Jun 5, 2017 4:04:00 PM

Flyhouse travels all around the world to provide solutions to the rigging requests we receive. Over the next month, we find ourselves working on several landmark projects closer to our Chicago home. Since we are a Chicago-born company, it's exciting to be part of the growth of local cornerstones known throughout the United States. So where can you find us in the Windy City during the month of June?

Award-Winning Project

Posted by Flyhouse on May 31, 2017 10:38:45 AM

In the summer of 2016, Flyhouse was part of a $52 million renovation project at Lane Tech High School, the largest high school in Chicago with 4,500 students. 

On May 23, 2017 project General Contractor, Tyler Lane Construction Inc received two awards for the work done on this project at the Chicago Building Congress’ annual Merit Awards dinner; the Owner’s Choice Award and the Rehab Construction Award. 

While we may have only been a small part of the project, we are honored to be in good company along with everyone else making this project a reality.

Macy's Flag Raising

Posted by Flyhouse on May 26, 2017 12:00:26 PM

While the tradition of having a flag hang in Macy's (previously Marshall Fields building) atrium began in 1916, Chicago Flyhouse has assisted in making the flag happen since 2003. Hanging over seven stories high, the flag is an amazing site to behold. See the video below to get a quick glimpse of how we made it happen.
