Founded in 1948 by Joseph Mitchell Hemingway in conjunction with the Van Packer Company, Hemingway and Associates has provided and installed some of the largest and more technical chimneys in the Chicago metropolitan area. Hemingway Chimney works with engineers, architects, mechanical contractors, and municipalities to create the most critical aspect of a mechanical system: the chimney.
Between the proper operations of specified equipment, to safely removing the byproducts of combustion, our work has been done in a timely and professional manner for over 65 years. Most importantly, the entire chimney system is covered under warranty, ensuring total customer satisfaction. Past projects include the 108” diameter UL Lab in Northbrook, Willis Towers generator exhaust, and Trump Towers.
Chimney products and techniques constantly change along with the evolution of high-efficient equipment for mechanical systems, and Hemingway Chimney is on the cutting edge of new technology. When you specify a Hemingway Chimney – you are specifying the highest quality finished product!
Hemingway provides job layout and costing for existing chimney stack systems as well as projects in early development. We are happy to design a custom plan layout for your review, utilizing our AutoCAD or VentBOM design programs. Our ultimate goal in the design phase is to search for the most efficient exit path for the stack and to determine the most functional material that meets your project specifications and fits within your budget.
Our relationships with our partners allows us to acquire material quickly and in turn move product more efficiently from our shop to your job site. We will keep you abreast of delivery timing and set expectations accordingly. At Hemingway we pride ourselves on our communication with our customers, and material delivery timing is paramount.
