Upon completion in Spring 2016, the new police facility will have a forensics lab, dispatch center, sally port and a 60-person community classroom. Plans also include a secured evidence storage area and dedicated storm areas that allow for increased safety for employees and prisoners. Impact Strategies will also construct a new, freestanding parking garage adjacent to the police headquarters. The garage is designed to hold 46 police cruisers and will have a mechanics area for city vehicles.
Mark Hinrichs, president of Impact Strategies, said, “This is an important project for the City and we’re pleased to have been selected as the construction manager for it. The department currently is housed in an outdated and overcrowded facility. Upon completion next year, the new headquarters will offer the department nearly 44,000 square feet of updated space and direct access to an onsite, covered parking garage for storage and maintenance of the department’s fleet.”
The construction/design team for the project includes Impact Strategies as the construction manager; St. Louis-based architectural design firm, The Lawrence Group and Kaskaskia Engineering Group as the Civil Engineer.
