New Projects Span Auto, Religious, Public Safety and Health Care Facilities

In the early weeks of 2015 clients have turned to WSKF Architects for our expertise in key areas of auto dealerships, religious facilities, public safety and health care.

The projects are:

Kansas City, Kan. Auto Dealerships – WSKF is leading a team designing a new Ford and Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge/Ram dealership in the Legends Auto Plaza planned near Interstate 435 and Parallel Parkway.  The dealerships will reflect the owner’s vision for their presence in the Kansas City market and the brand and other standards set forth by each manufacturer.

Little Brothers of the Lamb Monastery – The new monastery in eastern Kansas City, Kan., will serve as a residence and base for the work and worship of Little Brothers of the Lamb. The monastery design includes a dining room, kitchen/pantry and cloister area with residential rooms, library and chapel. WSKF is working jointly with Little Brothers of the Lamb and the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas in developing the design.    

Pleasant Valley Fire Department Station – Leaders of Pleasant Valley, Mo., turned to WSKF to design their new Fire Department Headquarters.  The new HQ/station encompasses 10,323 sq. ft. and includes three drive-through apparatus bays, bunk space for six, dayroom/kitchen, fitness area, training space as well as offices and other support spaces.

Smithville Area Fire Protection District – This district selected WSKF to design a new satellite station that would also serve as a prototype for its future station needs. At just under 6,200 sq. ft., the station includes two apparatus bays, bunk space, kitchen, dayroom, fitness area and other support spaces.

Linn County E-911 Facility – The Linn County E-911 Board selected the design-build team of Copeland Construction and WSKF Architects for the new countywide dispatch facility in Marceline, Mo. Our team is working with the board to repurpose the original convent building of the closed St. Francis Hospital. The 3,760-sq-ft facility will provide full dispatch capabilities and meet FEMA 361 standards. 

Highland Clinic – Upland Hills Health has commissioned WSKF for design of their new clinic to serve Highland, Wis., and surrounding communities. The facility will house doctor/nurse office space, exam rooms, a lab and pharmacy.
