Leopardo Completes New 30,000-SF Glen Ellyn Police Department
Leopardo completed a new 30,000-square-foot police station for the Glen Ellyn Police Department. An official ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Monday, July 17.
The new station replaced an undersized and outdated space previously shared with the village hall that was housed in a former junior high school originally built in 1928. The police department occupied the station for more than 40 years.
The new two-story station includes secured detention facilities and an enclosed sally port, as well as evidence processing with separate secured processing room storage and vehicle exam, officer locker rooms with bathroom and showers, emergency operating center, patrol investigations and administration spaces, large community room, public restrooms and fitness area. The facility also features View Dynamic Glass, electrochromic windows that tint to maximize natural light automatically, in the lobby and community room.
The Leopardo-led design-build project was completed in collaboration with architecture firm Dewberry two months ahead of schedule.
