Leopardo Completes Hanover Park Police Headquarters
HANOVER PARK, Illinois (February 20, 2012) — Leopardo recently completed construction of the new $15 million, 63,000-square-foot police headquarters for the Village of Hanover Park, which hosted a public grand opening ceremony on Saturday, February 18.
The state-of-the-art facility features:
A distinguishing characteristic of this project is its unique safety record. Leopardo took the initiative to partner with OSHA, allowing open-access to the government agency in order to achieve the absolute highest levels of construction safety. More than 400 site-specific safety orientations were conducted, 149 safety inspections and 10,000 safety observations performed. As a result, after more than 100,000 total work hours, the project’s incident rate was almost 30 percent below the national average.
Leopardo, one of the most experienced law enforcement and public safety construction firms in the Midwest, served as construction manager with Dewberry as architect. In addition to the Hanover Park Police Headquarters, Leopardo recently built the award-winning Aurora Police Headquarters (195,000 square feet), Clarendon Hills Police Headquarters (14,400 square feet), Beaufort Police, Courts and City Hall Complex (63,000 square feet), Romeoville Fire Station No. 3 (13,500 square feet), and the Mount Prospect Fire Station No. 14 (24,000 square feet).
