The Korte Company Breaks Ground For U.S. Army Reserve Center In Rockford, Illinois

The Korte Company will begin work on a 38,880 square foot Army Reserve Facility in Rockford, Illinois.

The combined Training Center/Organizational Maintenance Shop (OMS) is intended to form the centerpiece and most important facility of the Army Reserve Center (ARC) Rockford campus. This campus will consist of the combined Training Center/OMS and the Unheated Storage (UHS) buildings. Each elevation of this building was designed to take full advantage of the features provided by the site. Larger windows at key areas allow abundant natural light to permeate interior spaces as well as enhanced views.

The overall building massing and materials for the combined Training Center/OMS is reflective of the adjacent light industrial and residential areas.

The building is provided with a strong contrasting base extending to an exterior wainscot. The articulation of each material is designed for each elevation to provide the appropriate scale and proportion.

The proposed operable windows provide rhythm, scale, and accent to the expanses of exterior walls with ample daylighting to the interior spaces and views from these spaces.

The Korte Company, founded in 1958, specializes in design-build, construction management and construction services, and is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri with offices in Highland, Illinois and Las Vegas, Nevada. The company manages, on average, an excess of $330 million in annual construction volume.
