COVID-19 Update: All ongoing projects remain active with precautions in place according to OSHA and CDC guidelines. Staff across our five offices are staying safe by working remotely or by wearing masks and practicing social distancing while working on-site.

The Korte Company teamed up with Glik’s to design and construct a new 50,000 square foot office headquarters, distribution and e-commerce facility in Collinsville, Illinois. The Design-Build tilt-up facility includes approximately 20,000 square feet of office space and 30,000 square feet of distribution and e-commerce space.

Established in 1897, Glik’s is one of the oldest retailers in the United States and has worked with The Korte Company since the early 1970’s when they opened their Highland, Illinois store. Nearly forty years and three generations later, the long-standing relationship continues to build on mutual trust and hard work.

The new facility sits on nearly four acres along ABC Parkway in Collinsville, Illinois.  The two-story office area has an open office concept with a mezzanine overlooking the first floor entry, showroom, lounge and collaboration areas.  The design features large storefront windows to bring natural light into the interior space.

Two outdoor patios were provided and are located adjacent to the lunchroom and conference spaces.  The second floor is constructed as a steel framed structure with concrete floor topping.  The walls are metal framed with drywall throughout the building.    A distribution and e-commerce side of the facility accommodates a loading dock area with two dock doors and a drive thru door for shipping and receiving.

HVAC, fire protection, and electrical, including power and lighting have all been designed to accommodate daily operations.  The site amenities include 85 employee and visitor parking spaces as well as a bike rack and a car charging station.  Landscaping has been provided throughout the site to compliment the exterior of the building.
