McNay Truck Line Office and Vehicle Repair Facility, Quincy, Illinois
Because of over-crowding at their existing facility, it was necessary for McNay Truck Line to expand their
operation. The new facility includes a two-story office building attached to a vehicle repair building. The
nearly 2,500 square feet office area features a large curved metal facade with a distinctive barrel roof.
The vehicle repair area is approximately 10,000 square feet that also includes a wash bay. A major
design consideration for the construction of this building was to economically design a foundation
system on randomly compacted fill. It was determined that over excavated gravel and concrete spread
footings would be the most economical solution for this particular construction problem.
