IMEG provided engineering design for the City of Rock Island’s new police station. The $20 million, 44,500-square-foot building doubled the space available to the police department, which had outgrown its existing, 22,000-square-foot, 75-year-old facility. The new building and its modern technology allows the department to increase efficiency and upgrade services to the community.
IMEG provided site logistics, design, structural engineering, and a topographic survey for the new police headquarters and patrol garage. The civil services included a storm water management system with underground detention, permeable pavers, and bioswales. Utility plans included a new water main around the perimeter of the site. IMEG was involved in planning, design, shop drawing review, and site inspections during construction.
The new police headquarters building consists of steel framing with slab on deck composite floors. This building structure and slabs on-grade are founded on vibratory stone column elements that extend below a soft organic soil layer to solid bearing. The building also includes a 911 command center on the second floor that is rated for an F-3 storm event.
