We were selected by the Chicago Infrastructure Trust (CIT), in coordination with the City of Chicago and 2FM Department of Assets, Information and Services (AIS), to lead Chicago’s $85 million Joint Public Safety Training Center (JPSTC) project.
The new academy brings together various Chicago Police Department and Fire Department training facilities in to one new centralized campus. The center transforms the way that Chicago’s first responders are trained and prepared to serve the community and at the same time transformed a long vacant and abandoned parcel into a critical community asset. This community is helping to improve public safety, create jobs and spur development on the city's West Side, as well as strengthen the bond of trust between neighborhood residents and the first responders who serve and protect them.
Our accelerated, design-build delivery approach with our design and consulting services and construction arms delivered a centralized center suited to providing state-of-the-art training for both the next generation of public safety personnel and the ongoing training and education of current personnel. The facility integrates the latest training technology, provides for flexible work spaces and offices, and allows for increased and improved indoor and outdoor scenario-based training. The JPSTC now serves as a national model for exemplary safety personnel training.
