This 83,000 square-foot, two-story medical office building, with an emphasis on Orthopedics, includes Radiology, Laboratory, Clinical, and Physical Therapy departments, as well as public areas such as retail, coffee shop, and meeting spaces. The second floor houses Specialty Care Practitioners and additional space for future healthcare specialists.

FSA (Feeler, S. Architects) utilized a 25-degree site orientation and combined it with a 250-foot glazing and intentional overhangs to maximize the flow of natural light throughout the building.

By designing the building with four entrances, the facility provides expansive parking for its guests and staff without sacrificing customer convenience. Waiting areas line the interior length of the building, creating comfortable patient spaces with ample technology support (internet, power, etc.). Wayfinding is made simple for both patients and staff with each clinical POD designed in a circuit pattern, while a back-of-house corridor allows providers and employees to access and supply departments without interfering with patient-oriented spaces.

This building is currently under construction. 2017 Design Competition Team: FSA (Feeler, S. Architects), HBD Construction, SSC Engineering, DMI (Design Mechanical), and PSBA (Poepping, Stone, Bach & Associates).

Construction is scheduled to begin in March on a new 188,000 square manufacturing facility for The Knapheide Manufacturing Co. in Quincy, Illinois. The Korte Company was awarded the design-build contract earlier this year.

The new plant will be located directly south of the company’s existing 480,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, which was originally constructed by The Korte Company in 1995.

When completed in early 2018, the expansion is expected to create 250 new positions, including manufacturing, installation, and various support roles.

Headquartered in Quincy, Illinois, The Knapheide Manufacturing Company is a family-owned business established in 1848.  For six generations, Knapheide has provided customers with high-quality, work-ready transportation solutions.  More work vehicles on the road today carry the Knapheide name than any other manufacturer.

Knapheide partners and customers include truck and van distributors, commercial dealers, commercial fleets, fleet management companies, government entities, utilities, and end-users across a wide range of vocational segments.
