BATAVIA – From Batavia’s two fire stations to the new LivingWell Cancer Resource Center in Geneva, Batavia-based Kluber Architects and Engineers has made its mark on the region.

Kluber this month celebrates 25 years of being in business. Kluber Architects President Mike Kluber attributed the firm’s success to the relationships the company has forged with its clients.

“It’s about servicing clients,” Kluber said. “It’s a relationship. It’s not just a project-based experience.”

Kluber Architects has a long list of projects in the region, including the two redesigned fire stations in Batavia that opened in 2007, The Holmstad Town Center in Batavia, the new Health and Life Sciences Center at Elgin Community College and LivingWell Cancer Resource Center’s new building in Geneva that opened last year.

Kluber also turned a dilapidated building in downtown Batavia that dates to the late 1800s into modern offices for the firm. Kluber purchased the building at 10 S. Shumway Ave. in downtown Batavia and extensively renovated it, including replacing the roof and making the building handicapped accessible.

“They certainly have been a major contributor to the betterment of Batavia,” Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke said.

He said Kluber’s building “has become one of the points of pride in downtown Batavia.” Schielke also lauded the firm’s work on the two fire stations in the city.

Kluber continues to grow, and recently opened an office in Gurnee through the acquisition of Daniel Robison Architects.

“It is a good opportunity to grow,” Kluber said. “This is a matter of how to better serve our clients in that area.”
