This project involved the evaluation of the City of Champaign’s existing police facility that had become extremely overcrowded only twelve years after its initial construction. IGW’s initial scope of work included an assessment of the existing building conditions, the development of a program of functional and operational space needs and conceptualization of alternative strategies for expanding and renovating the facility while maintaining its occupancy.
Comprehensive design and construction phase services were then provided for the adopted expansion strategy which wrapped a 52,000 square foot addition around the original building to preserve existing police and municipal parking and a communications tower. Following the new addition construction, the 27,000 square foot original building was renovated including a later project that consolidated all remote evidence storage and processing operations within the facility.
