Village of Bartlett Selects FQC For New Police Facility Project
The Village of Bartlett selected Frederick Quinn Corporation (FQC) to provide Construction Management as Constructor services for a new police facility that can adequately meet the technology, equipment and system requirements of a modern law enforcement agency.
Construction is expected to be done in two phases, part of the existing building will be torn down to make room for the first phase of the new building. Operations would then move to the new section so the rest of the old building can be demolished to make way for phase two. The new building will be almost double the size of the existing 22,000 square foot building.
The work is scheduled to start construction in July 2017.
