McHenry County Sheriff’s Dept. Breaks Ground

Construction is underway for the new Regional McHenry County Sheriff’s Department Training Facility!  FQC is happy to announce the Department broke ground yesterday on the project which includes a new training facility and a new firing range.  Both sections of the project will be located in Cary, Illinois, utilizing the former Cary Village Hall and property owned by Cary’s Public Works Department.  The nearly $8M project is a collaboration between the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department, FQC and FGM Architects and will be completed by the end of the year.

Elk Grove Park District Awarded "Outstanding Facility"

FQC congratulates the Elk Grove Park District on their award for Outstanding Park & Facility 2022!  The award goes to the new Fox Run Golf Clubhouse & Maintenance Facility and was announced last month at the IAPD/IPRA Conference.

The Outstanding Park & Facility Award is to honor public agencies for outstanding and unique achievements in the design and development of new or renovated parks or recreation facilities. 

The $8.4 million project included demolition of the existing clubhouse and construction of a brand new building on the existing site – all while maintaining operations. The new clubhouse features banquet facilities for 150 people;  a new bar with indoor golf simulator stations; indoor and outdoor dining areas; a comprehensive commercial kitchen; new administrative offices; and basement cart storage. Additionally, the project included a new garage with maintenance bays to serve the entire district.

FQC worked as Construction Manager along side Williams Architects to complete the project, which opened in Fall of 2021.

The library, opening in 2023, has a long history. In 2015 FQC completed a Facility Condition Assessment Report to evaluate building systems (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection). Following this assessment Engberg Anderson Architects and FQC developed a 5-year master facility plan and the library board moved forward and passed a public referendum.

Following years of site evaluation and negotiations with the local park district to remain on the existing library site, the decision was made to choose a new site on Main Street, near downtown Lombard.

The new 2-story, 55,000 SF facility will feature larger meeting and study rooms with the latest audio and visual technologies. It will also allow the library to expand its Youth Services to include a storytime room and flexible activities space. The adult collection will occupy the second story - a quiet space surrounded by windows, and the center of the building will be a community “Hub” featuring a café area with seating. The new building will also feature a convenient drive-thru for easy pick up and drop off as well as self check-out stations.


Highland Park Begins Construction on New Fire Station

Construction is underway on the long awaited Ravinia Fire Station #32 in Highland Park.  Frederick Quinn Corporation, as Construction Manager, is working with the City of Highland Park and Williams Architects to develop a new home for the Department.  The replacement facility, built on the site of the former station, will have better functionality and up-to-date modern equipment. City officials held a ground breaking ceremony to kick off the start of the project. Recently the Fire Department moved into a temporary facility during construction.  The $6.5M project is scheduled for completion in the Spring of 2023.
