Village of Fox River Grove Public Works Facility
Fox River Grove, Illinois
The Village of Fox River Grove had outgrown their existing Public Works facility. Their old facility was located on a shared use site with their main sanitary plant operations. The sanitary plant is scheduled to grow in size in the next few years. As such, the existing Public Works facility will impede this growth.
In order to be proactive, the Village acquired adjacent parcels of land to the north of the existing sanitary plant operations to construct a new facility that is 11,000 square feet in size. A salt and materials storage structure was also included on site.
The new building includes four (4) double depth, drive through apparatus bays. One bay will be equipped to service municipal fleet vehicles and one bay will be equipped to wash vehicles.
On-site parking for ten (10) staff vehicles will be provided in the layout yard space. The layout yard will be enclosed with security fencing and gate systems.
This project received the APWA Fox Valley Branch Project of the Year for Structures less than 5 Million.
