South Elgin Village Hall and Police Department
The Village of South Elgin selected Kluber Architects + Engineers to design their new Police Station on Village-owned property. All Design Documents have been prepare and we are now in the Construction Administration phase.
This particular project initially began as a Master Planning exercise for a Municipal Campus, including the Village’s City Hall, Police Station, and Parks and Recreation Center. Our team first met in November 2021 to discuss the intent of the study and understand the future facility needs. As part of this Master Planning exercise, it was determined that to accommodate their long range goals of a municipal campus, the Police Department would have to be their first priority.
Engaging the Staff
Before the design phase of this project, our team took the South Elgin team on tours of local Police Department facilities to get an understanding of the function, scale, and aesthetic of their buildings. The Village appreciated this component of the project because it gave their Facilities Managers opportunities to speak with their peers at other facilities and understand their building maintenance needs before designing their new Police Department.
The New Facility
South Elgin’s new Public Safety Center will feature several critical areas. Just a few of those spaces include:
- Several dedicated social work spaces
- An Emergency Operations Center
- An officer wellness room
- State-of-the-art evidence processing spaces
- Many multi-purpose spaces, such as conference rooms, storage, and more
- A dedicated roll call room
All without a tax increase to the residents of the Village!
