Building Economic Growth

Bush Construction is proud to be a partner with MetroLINK, working to build The "Q" Multi-Modal Station in Moline. The 85,000 square foot, six-floor transportation center will become a hub for Amtrak passenger rail service between the Quad Cities and Chicago.

For the public piece of this project, Bush is working to renovate the 100 year-old O'Rourke Building at the corner of 12th Street and 4th Avenue. The scope of work includes renovating the current basement space, building a sky tower and glass atrium, and managing the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and storm water retention systems.

 “What’s unique about this project is that the construction is a historic project,” explains Bill Bruce, Project Manager/Superintendent. “This means that the project is funded by federal grants, and nearly every government agency is involved—including the National Park Service—since the construction includes work on a city road, state highway and railroad.”

Other elements of this project include common space waiting areas for rail passengers, restrooms, a plaza with a canopy and parking.

Bush Construction has been an active partner on this project since the design was presented in 2012. The Bush team was selected for this $11 million piece of the project due to our bid, quality, experience and involvement in the region’s growth.

“This is a great project for Bush,” states Bruce. “We’ve had success with MetroLINK before, building their Transit Maintenance Facility, and our skillset for collaboration is great. This project really allows our expertise to shine for this client, and the Quad Cities region as a whole. Being able to see the final product in 2017 and what this will mean for our community will be truly amazing.”

This is the second time that Bush Construction has worked with MetroLINK on a construction project. In 2014, Bush built their Transit Maintenance Facility which featured many environmentally-friendly elements.

 

Bush Construction is proud to continually work on projects that invest in our region’s future.
