Bordering southern Lake Michigan and conveniently located 25 miles from downtown Chicago, Gary, Indiana is known for its large steel mills and the birthplace of the Jackson Family. The architecture of many beautiful historic buildings is being remodeled with a partnership between the Department of Redevelopment and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority. The Miller Beach Arts & Creative District has been a force for community growth since 2011. In the last six years, 18 new businesses have opened in the area, and the biennial Lake Effekt Arts Festival has grown into a much-anticipated draw.  


Although the restructuring of the steel and other heavy industry in the late 20th century resulted in a loss of jobs and economic fall, Miller Beach attracts economic interest with year-round and summer homes within Lake Michigan, as well as the city’s focus on rebuilding vacant historic buildings. With such a dense and economically growing city, Midwest Environmental Consulting Services are required to keep every project on track. Our experienced and expert professionals create safer work environments for your organization by providing long-term, cost-effective solutions to a wide range of environmental issues.

Midwest Environmental Consulting Services performed outstanding service for our Team at Trewyn Middle School in Peoria, IL. Steve Szeredy and Dylan Stasz in particular were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend MEC to others, as they offered real-world solutions for difficult situations, and provided flexibility to our Team in developing an aggressive schedule.
