Klingner Acquires Schrader & Associates

An Outstanding Legacy Is Carried On Through Klingner Professional Services

The most recent Galesburg Chamber of Commerce's 
Business After Hours, was hosted by the
Galesburg Branch
of Klingner & Associates (Klingner).  

At that well-attended event, Klingner and Schrader & Associates made the historic announcement that Klingner purchased the land surveying and civil engineering firm of Kenneth E. Schrader & Associates, LTD (Schrader).  Klingner will now continue to assist those clients of
Schrader, conveniently from the local Klingner branch office in Galesburg.  Schrader selected Klingner, among many
firms, to continue their mission in providing quality
professional services to their current clientele.
In 2004, Klingner announced its merger and expansion into Galesburg, IL through reorganization with Metzger Johnson Architects (also located and merged in Burlington, IA).  Since then, along with Metzger Johnson's excellent reputation,
since 1984, in providing architectural design in the specialized fields of education, health and civic associations, with an emphasis on historical preservation/renovation, Klingner has been providing services to the Galesburg area in: civil, environmental and geotechnical engineering and construction material testing services, architecture and interior design services and land surveying and various inspection services.  This merging of talent created an opportunity to provide assistance to a wide-range of clients.  In 2014, Metzger Johnson Founders, David Metzger and Robert Johnson retired after many years of quality, dedicated services which produced award-winning projects.  Due to that transition, Klingner Architects and Metzger Johnson Architects, came together to become Klingner Architectural Group.
Firm-wide, Klingner offers services that include: civil, environmental, mechanical/electrical, transportation, structural, water resources and water/wastewater engineering; architecture, landscape architecture and recreational design, interior design, planning; land surveying, 3D scanning services; geotechnical engineering and construction material testing services.  These professional services are provided to anticipate and meet the needs of individuals, industrial and commercial businesses, municipalities, and governmental agencies.  Klingner has built their Firm on a solid foundation of experience, team effort and dedication in order to meet the needs of their clients and produce award-winning results.

Today, Klingner is proud to celebrate 110 years of quality, professional services and are honored to have been chosen by Mr. Schrader to carry out his level of excellence in customer service to all of his existing clients.  Schrader was an outstanding firm, with a 55 year history in providing professional services of quality and integrity, in land surveying and civil engineering throughout the Galesburg and western Illinois area.

Klingner Invited To Present
at International Atomic Energy Agency

 Mike Klingner was invited to be a presenter at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) workshop for “Decision Makers on Flood Management and Mitigation, held at the Argonne National Laboratory during the first week of September 2015.

His presentation focused on “Flood Management and Agriculture in the Mid-Western United States”, and representatives from ten different Asian countries were in attendance. As the Midwest is known throughout the world for its productive agriculture and flood management issues, there is a lot of international interest in the United States agriculture. Mike was one of seven presenters during the three day workshop.

Klingner In The News!
Recently, Klingner's renovation at Galesburg High School in Galesburg, IL was featured in The Register-Mail.  This project features a new renovated entrance with new LED lighting design and new secure-entry system for the school. 

This new impressive lighting design can feature up to ten programmable lighting shows that the school can use throughout the school year to highlight various school
events, special awareness days and National Holidays. 
These energy-efficient light upgrades were installed this
past summer and are "pennies" in the school's annual
operational costs.

Quick Tip from Cullan Duke;
Klingner Landscape Architect and Civil/Site Department Manager

"As September comes to an end and we enter October, there are some tasks that can be completed to improve your lawn and garden.  The past month has been dry so water trees, shrubs, and evergreens until the ground freezes. A layer of mulch applied around these plants will help to reduce winter injury.  Lawn seeding should be completed by the middle of the month.  This is also the best time to fertilize your lawn if you only fertilize once a year.
October is a good time to transplant trees and roses.  Spring flowering bulbs such as tulips and hyacinths can be planted.  Remove weeds, debris, and dead or diseased plants. Insects and diseases can overwinter in dead or diseased plants.  Harvest your apples and any remaining vegetables that are sensitive to frost.  - Cullan"
