This Champaign Illinois college had a facility need for both athletic training and instructional facilities for personal trainers and Kinesiology. The facility was conceived as an addition to the existing gymnasium which allowed the under utilized lower level to be renovated into lockers, classrooms and trainers rooms.

Peoria Public Schools needed different solutions to the same problem at Rolling Acres and Calvin Coolidge grade schools. Here at Rolling Acres, a new cafeteria/ multipurpose room freed the gymnasium for physical education and paved the way for a remodeling with new bleachers and a wood gym floor. The placement of the cafeteria on the site allowed immediate access to the after lunch playground and an outdoor lunch courtyard during fair weather.
The City of East Peoria and Fondulac Library executed an inter-governmental agreement to build a phase one Civic Complex and Library on a former brownfield factory site in the heart of the community.
