Representatives of contracting firm Korte & Luitjohan gathered Wednesday, April 17, with officials from the city of Collinsville to celebrate the completion of the new Collinsville water treatment plant with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The 20,000-square-foot building is constructed of pre-cast concrete panels that range in size from 35 to 40 feet tall. The main process building includes a new two-story lab facility, office area and process areas. The new state-of-the-art water treatment plant is able to process five-million gallons of water per day and is designed to provide clean, quality water to Collinsville residents for decades to come.
Korte & Luitjohan, based in Highland, offers design-build, construction management and general contracting. It has 60 years of building experience in the commercial, industrial and infrastructure markets throughout the Metro St. Louis area and Southern and Central Illinois.
