IMPACT Strategies Creates State of the Art Facility for Ameren Illinois

in Companies/Homepage Primary/News

IMPACT Strategies teamed with Ameren Illinois to renovate the energy delivery company’s 60-year-old East St. Louis regional operations facility. A grand re-opening of this facility was celebrated at a local ceremony in January.

IMPACT Strategies started work less than a year ago in May 2017 and completed their tight schedule on time in December 2017. First, they gutted the office building and truck shelters, stripping them down to their basic skeleton. From there, IMPACT Strategies installed completely new electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and fire protection systems, plus interior finishes and a new exterior facade. Features of the revitalized facility include energy efficient LED lighting throughout the building, numerous conference rooms, and focus rooms equipped with updated technology, a new wellness room, locker rooms, and a large training room. The storage yard was also entirely rebuilt and parking lots were refinished and extended for increased employee parking.

For Ameren Illinois, this project was about more than just upgrading a facility. It demonstrated the company’s commitment to solidifying East St. Louis as a key hub for its Metro East operations while providing its local employees with a more efficient, state-of-the-art work space.

IMPACT Strategies Revitalizes Belleville City Hall

in Companies/News

IMPACT Strategies recently completed the renovation of Belleville’s 60-year-old City Hall building. With the help of architect, The Lawrence Group and civil engineer Kaskaskia Engineering Group, IMPACT Strategies was able to maintain the historical integrity while still revitalizing the building to improve public accessibility and function. This major renovation included environmental improvements, such as asbestos abatement and the installation of energy efficient windows in the atrium. Modernizations were also made to the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.

“For decades to come, our City Hall will better serve the needs of our community and staff. This revitalized building will enhance our city services, and by doing so, benefit our citizens and represent the committed values of the City of Belleville.” Said Mayor Mark Eckert.

Public safety and accessibility were at the forefront of this project; prompting the necessary improvements to the elevator, along with entryways and bathrooms to meet ADA standards. Accommodations were also made for an additional elevator to be installed in the future. Along with the improved access, various aesthetic enhancements were made. The terrazzo flooring was refinished, the clerk’s counter was redone, a new roof was installed, and the cell tower was repainted. Perhaps the most noticeable change is in the council chambers, where a balcony was added for additional seating, and the audio/visual system was updated.

This project was the final phase of a three-phase plan to enhance critical facilities for the city. IMPACT Strategies completed the first two phases in June of 2016, these phases included the construction of Belleville’s new $11 million police department headquarters and a parking garage to accommodate the city’s police cruisers and maintenance vehicles.

in Companies/News

IMPACT Strategies recently teamed up with J.R. Rentals, LLC to complete their 114,000-square-foot warehouse and office building for Weir Parts Distribution in Red Bud, Illinois. The new top-of-the-line facility for the all GM, all Ford, and Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram parts dealer was designed by Quadrant Design, Inc, of Waterloo.

“Until now, our business operations had been spread out over 10 different storage buildings. The new facility enables us to consolidate our operations, which undoubtedly will benefit our employees and customers,” said Norman L. Roy, owner of Weir Parts Distribution. “I couldn’t have been more pleased with how IMPACT Strategies handled the challenges along the way. Even the weather didn’t stand in their way to get this project completed on time,” he added.

Substantial efficiencies are expected to be gained with the new facility and its custom technology and conveyors. The warehouse has space to accommodate the 74 trucks in Weir’s fleet and office space for their 100+ employees.

IMPACT Strategies Completes Construction of Region’s First University-Connected Retirement Community

in Companies/News

Construction-management firm IMPACT Strategies recently completed Cedarhurst of St. Charles, a $17.5 million senior living community located in St. Charles, Missouri. The 99,000-square-foot, 100-unit assisted living and memory care community is part of University Commons, a mixed-use development directly across from Lindenwood University’s flagship campus. The facility celebrated its grand opening June 25.

IMPACT Strategies served as the construction manager for the project, providing turnkey services from start-to-finish and overseeing all trade subcontractors. The large scale of the project presented a number of challenges along the way due to the limited site area and ongoing adjacent development. Those constraints did not create any major set-backs for IMPACT due to its previous experience building similar Cedarhurst properties. IMPACT also had familiarity with the University Commons development from having previously constructed the Schnucks grocery store in 2014.

Mark Hinrichs, president of IMPACT Strategies, said, “Our past experiences and familiarity with the location and client certainly enabled us to keep this project running smoothly and provide leadership for exceptional success. We have built four senior living communities for Cedarhurst in the past eight years, but this one in St. Charles is the largest and certainly the most challenging.”

 

Dover Development said Cedarhurst’s unique location and proximity to Lindenwood University makes it the first senior living community in the St. Louis region to strategically locate on or near a university campus. Approximately 50 similar developments exist across the country. The close proximity provides unique benefits to both Cedarhurst residents and Lindenwood students, including a lifelong learning program and access to University sporting and cultural events for Cedarhurst residents, and the creation of internship and other programs to educate Lindenwood students on issues relevant to the growing population of seniors, including caring for persons with memory loss issues like Alzheimer’s Disease.

IMPACT Strategies Begins Renovations to Belleville’s City Hall

in Companies/News

Construction-management firm IMPACT Strategies announced it has begun asbestos remediation and demolition as part of a major renovation project at Belleville’s City Hall that will be ongoing until the summer of 2017. The $4.5 million project is being done to help expand and modernize Belleville’s existing City Hall facilities.

The project’s first phase involves the removal of asbestos throughout the building, as well as changes to its exterior and interior to make it ADA accessible. Renovations also include updates to the main administration areas on the first and second floors; significant security enhancements in Council Chambers, and the addition of a balcony in Council Chambers to provide increased seating capacity. The renovation project is being done in collaboration with The Lawrence Group Architects of St. Louis, Inc.

Earlier last year IMPACT Strategies completed construction of Belleville’s new $15 million police department headquarters located at 720 W. Main Street. The project enabled the City to provide a solution for the outdated, overcrowded building that has housed police headquarters and City Hall offices since 1957.

At 720 W. Main Street, IMPACT Strategies reconstructed the building’s interior, transforming the 44,000-square-foot building it into a new, state-of-the-art police department with a forensics lab, dispatch center, sally port, community classroom, 9-1-1 emergency call center, and storm safety areas for prisoners and employees. IMPACT also built an adjacent parking garage with enough room to accommodate a large number of police cruisers and a maintenance area for city vehicles.

Mayor Mark Eckert said, “IMPACT Strategies did outstanding work on the renovation of the new police department, diligently working to ensure that no detail was overlooked and that we remained operational without any disruption to police business and the emergency call center. I am confident they will complete the City Hall project with the same efficiency and professionalism, and with as little disruption as possible to City business. In the end, we’ll have a facility that will much better serve the needs of our citizens.”

IMPACT Strategies Completes Academy Sports + Outdoors Store In Record Time

in Companies/News

Construction-management firm IMPACT Strategies of Fairview Heights, Illinois, today announced it has completed construction of the first Illinois retail location for Academy Sports + Outdoors. The 62,000-square-foot store is located at 1574 Highway 50 in O’Fallon, Illinois in the high-volume Lincoln Crossing retail development. The retailer hosted its grand opening on November 18, 2016.

 

IMPACT Strategies began foundation excavation the third week of May and continued with an aggressive schedule that enabled the company to turnover the store to the client just 150 days after the start of construction. Tilt-up construction was used to accommodate the store’s fast-track delivery. IMPACT Strategies worked with architect Harrison French & Associates of Bentonville, Arkansas on the project.

Mark Hinrichs, president of IMPACT Strategies, said, “Tilt-up construction has many advantages, including cost containment, fast-track schedules, architectural aesthetics and durability. Using this method proved to be the most efficient approach for this project allowing us to overcome excessive weather delays to meet the client’s aggressive deadline.”

Academy Sports + Outdoors is a premier sports, outdoor and lifestyle retailer with a broad assortment of quality hunting, fishing, and camping equipment and gear along with sports and leisure products, footwear, apparel and much more.  The Texas-based company has more than 200 stores nationwide with plans to aggressively expand into the Midwest. It currently plans to soon open a store in Manchester, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, approximately 40 miles from O’Fallon, Illinois.
