Past Clients

We have had Ken Hazlett as the architect for several projects on our more than century-old home. We had concerns about preserving the style of the home while making it more functional. In each scenario, Ken intently listened to our wishes and gave us multiple designs from which to choose. We returned (and will in the future) to Ken because, in addition to architecture, Hazlett & Mertz Project Management skillfully brought Ken’s vision to life. The crew members were all extremely courteous and were easy to communicate with regarding project timing and stages. The whole process was not only transparent but made our family feel like we were taking part in the transformation of our home. In the years since the projects have been completed, we still marvel at how our living spaces have been transformed.

The deck that Ken Hazlett and his team built for us is, simply said, a work of art. Not only is it beautiful, thoughtfully and carefully created and executed, it is perfectly functional and meets all our needs. Our deck has changed how we enjoy our home in Evanston and has anchored us even more solidly in our neighborhood. From inception to completion, Ken and his team were attentive and devoted. Throughout the process, I enjoyed each of our meetings during which we would discuss the plans and see them evolve as Ken designed an impressive construction in which our vision of an open and welcoming outdoor space is exquisitely realized. Furthermore, Ken was present at every moment, directing, orienting and helping us make the best decisions for our environment. We were supported in all ways from the beginning to the completion and even beyond. Furthermore, every worker who contributed to the project was intentional and proud of their craft. It was a true joy to work with each and every one and witness their professionalism. The results of Ken’s work- our gorgeous deck- delights us every day. What Ken built for us, enhances our happiness as it became the highlight of how we live our best lives in South Evanston.

I can’t say enough about the job Hazlett and Mertz did on the large gut renovation of our 1880’s Victorian home. They were extremely organized and efficient in managing all aspects of the project, from scheduling contractors to staying on top of budgeting. Their attention to detail ensured that steps weren’t overlooked and that every task was completed with precision. They worked closely with us throughout the entire process to make sure we were satisfied with every decision made along the way. Their expertise and professionalism made this complicated renovation a success.
