Kim’s Kids of Missouri selected The Korte Company as the design-build contractor for their new 9,300 square foot daycare facility located in St. Louis, MO.  The facility consists of ten classrooms, a multi-purpose room with cathedral ceiling, a sick room, office area with lobby and reception area, employee breakroom, kitchen, laundry room, and an exterior storage room.

The exterior features include a one way drop off driveway, covered canopies at the main entrance, two playground areas, and a landscaped parking lot.  The exterior facade is bright and colorful utilizing colored split face concrete masonry units, dryvit, architectural shingles, and crayon style columns at the aluminum glass front entry canopies.  The building and site development was designed to accommodate a future addition which would provide four additional classrooms.

The facility is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day, providing care for children infants through school age.  The facility is designed with a backup power generator to keep the children safe and comfortable in the event of a power outage.

The Korte Company assisted the owner in acquiring a full city block in the City of St. Louis (24 separate parcels), getting the alley partially vacated and re-subdividing the land into 3 parcels of property.
