Project Details

The Kendall County Forest Preserve asked the Kluber Architects + Engineers team to design a Nature Center at Subat Forest Preserve located on Eldamain Road in Plano, Illinois.

Currently in progress, our team has partnered with Bluestone + Associates for the exhibit design, as well as Upland Design for the landscape and civil engineering services.

The project in Plano involves the following:

  • Construction of a new ADA-accessible three-season, open-air nature center with an outdoor classroom area, storage room, and integrated interpretive exhibits for public education
  • Addition of one additional composting toilet facility
  • Reconfiguration and expansion of the existing, accessible gated parking lot to allow for school bus entry, drop off, and exit
  • Multi-use limestone screenings trail and wetland boardwalk improvements

This new space will attract new visitors to the Forest Preserve, and is expected to be a valuable resource for community members. The project is anticipated to be complete in the winter of 2024.
