Hoar to expand, renovate Leesburg Police Department Public Safety building for $17.89 million

Hoar Construction says it has broken ground on a 14,500-sq. ft. addition and 21,000-sq. ft. renovation at the 27-year-old Leesburg Police Department’s Public Safety Facility. The project is expected to be completed in late 2025 and the contractor says it will “aid in recruiting new members to the police force.”

Project partners include Dewberry as the architect and RK&K as the program manager.

A published report from 2022 puts the project’s budget at $22 million. The Town of Leesburg says in a note to WCN that “the awarded bid price was $17,882,733.00.”

Tradespeople willd build out existing locker rooms, including significant expansions to the women’s locker room. The plans also include additional office space, interview rooms and an expanded parking lot for police cruisers. A mezzanine level will also be built in the one-story building, where a fitness center will be added for police officers and staff to use. Renovations will include improvements to the electrical room and existing facilities.

“This project will play a significant role in bolstering the Leesburg Police Department’s recruiting efforts, as the improvements will modernize the building and bring a number of upgraded amenities for members of the force to utilize,” Hoar project manager Will Carbaugh said in a Sept. 22 statement.

“Our team is dedicated to ensuring this project is delivered on time, and with a standard of care and coordination that allows for the department to continue running smoothly during the entire process. We look forward to working closely alongside the professionals at Leesburg PD, and we are thankful to have first-rate partners who carry the same commitment to excellence at our side.”

To keep daily operations running during the construction process, Hoar will implement careful sequencing to ensure the department can stay open while each phase of the project is carried out. Part of this process involves moving the emergency response call center to a temporary location on site while the existing center is renovated. Hoar will also utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) to coordinate mechanical, electrical and plumbing components of the project, enabling the team to create 3D models of the building to aid in planning, design and execution.

Hoar has been active in the D.C. market with similar projects, including the new $14 million Vienna Police Department headquarters in Vienna, Virginia and an exterior facade renovation at the Embassy of Kenya. Both projects were completed in 2022.
