Eye Docs Developing New O’Fallon, IL Class A Office Building


In their first venture as developers, two eye specialists are building a three-story, multi-tenant Class A office building along Illinois West Highway 50 that broke ground late last year and is aiming for completion in September.

Optometrist Dr. Joshua Wilson of Advanced Vision Care and Ophthalmologist Dr. Michael Stock of Ideal Eye Surgery are developing 36,525 square feet at 821 West Highway 50, one-half mile from HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in O’Fallon, IL. The two medical professionals will move respective practices to the new location.

The Striler Group served as owner’s rep, IMPACT Strategies is the construction manager and TR,i Architects is the designer.

Richard Striler, president of The Striler Group, said his company has served many entrepreneurial clients through the years, those who are designing and building projects either for their own use or as an investment.

Dr. Wilson said the opportunity to build new and to be part of the growing O’Fallon community made sense.

“When Dr. Stock and I started this project, we went from a couple of single-story buildings to what is being built today,” said Wilson. “This location deserved a Class A professional/medical building.”

Wilson added that the project marks only the beginning of further development along this busy stretch of West Highway 50.

Mark Hinrichs, president of Fairview Heights-based IMPACT Strategies, said he is particularly enthusiastic about spearheading the construction of a Class A office development in his hometown.

“It is particularly gratifying for me as an original resident of O’Fallon, Illinois, to continue to participate in its growth with this stellar new project,” said Hinrichs. “Doctors Wilson and Stock have great vision for the growth potential of their practices in this new strategic location.”

IMPACT Strategies Creates State of the Art Facility for Ameren Illinois


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


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.
