The Beehyyve is a design collaborative. We desire to leverage our involvement within Englewood and surrounding communities by creating an affordable space for our partner design firms. Currently our members provide design and engineering services to several groups throughout Englewood, Bronzeville, Woodlawn, Chatham, Auburn-Gresham, Lawndale, East Garfield Park, Kenwood, Hyde Park and several other communities through Chicago. Our desire is to have a local place for our clients to meet with each of our member firms by creating a co-working space for ten architects and engineers, an accountant, a contractor, a real-estate broker and a lawyer.
Potential clients will be able to easily access professional services that are currently not located within the local region. We will also provide a low cost option for independent professional service firms to host clients.
Fifty (50) percent of profits will be directed towards grants to provide emergency design services for local residents and not-for-profits at risk for losing their properties due to violations. Fifty (50) percent of profits will be directed towards scholarships and internships for local residents who desire to pursue STEAM careers.
