As the oldest collegiate athletic conference, the Big Ten is no pushover when it comes to top-of-the-line gameplay and equipment.

The Arlington Heights Police Department in Arlington Heights, Illinois, had been housed in a cramped, outdated building for years.

When the O’Fallon, Missouri Police Department began planning for a new Justice Center, one which would house and facilitate all police and court functions, they knew they had a many space and storage considerations at hand. Their city had experienced fast growth, and they wanted a facility that could keep pace for decades to come.
They had worked with Spacesaver before, who involved our team at the onset of the planning phase. This relationship allowed us to optimize space with the right mix of storage solutions and keep costs low.
