Creve Coeur City Council voted on Monday, January 8 to award a $7,378,300 contract for the construction of a new police station to United Construction, the lowest of seven bids received for the project. The contract amount is within the established budget, which is funded by a November 2016 voter-approved bond issue.
Construction is scheduled to begin this month, with completion expected by March 2019.
The 25,000 square-foot, two-story facility will be located at 350 N. New Ballas Road just north of the existing Government Center. The building was designed by Arch Images with Navigate Solutions serving as Project Manager.
The design addresses the issues raised in the Facilities Space Needs Analysis, which was completed in 2015. The site plan features a new secondary access road for police personnel onto Magna Carta Road, improving the parking configuration which currently creates hazards between police vehicles and community center patrons. The building will also include a training center and dedicated Emergency Operations Center, which is a critical component of managing public safety and security during major incidents.
“Our officers are committed to providing the highest level of service to the Creve Coeur community,” said Chief of Police Glenn Eidman, “and the new police station will provide us with the tools necessary to maintain that level of service.”
