Eden Park Supportive Living

PK Steel Erection Division (Central Illinois Erectors) erected structural steel for this (7) story addition and erected the (2) story addition on top of existing facility. Working over the top of an existing facility presented a high level of tedious workmanship and skill. We also erected the structural precast wall panels, hollow core floor planks, and the ornamental/misc. steel for the building.

Graduate School of Library and Information Science

This project featured an addition and renovation to the existing GSLIS Building on UIUC Campus. The project posed many challenges including a very complicated 'stick built' roof system that was custom framed by Petry-Kuhne Carpenters. To put a modern addition on a historic building such as GSLIS and still maintain the architecture, and to make it appear as if the addition has always belonged, is an artwork requiring a high level of craftsmanship. PK rose to the challenge and not only completed the project on time, but to the highest quality standards.
