At last evening’s Galesburg Chamber of Commerce event, hosted by the Galesburg branch of Klingner & Associates (Klingner), 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 merged with office 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 and water/wastewater engineering; architecture, landscape architecture and recreational design, interior design, planning; land surveying and geotechnical engineering and construction material testing services.  Klingner’s team comprises of professionals licensed as civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, mechanical engineers, structural engineers, architects, landscape architects, interior designers/space planners, land surveyors, soil scientists, geologists, asbestos inspectors, welding inspectors, and geographic information system specialists.  Klingner services are provided to meet the needs of individuals, industrial and commercial businesses, municipalities, and governmental agencies.  Klingner has built their professional services 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.
