Delaware Engineering provided planning, design, and construction administration services for a new 2,700 SF facility for the Village Police Department. Delaware worked with Village personnel to evaluate multiple building sites, and consulted with Police Department staff to determine facility needs and incorporate them into the overall design. The project plans were submitted to and approved by the NYS Commission of Corrections and NYS Office of Court Administration.
The Village elected to construct the building using precast concrete wall panels for the foundation and exterior walls, and a conventional wood truss and shingle roof. Construction was broken into phases for two reasons: (1) to allow for work to proceed as finances became available, and (2) to allow the Village to perform portions of the project, including site work and building interior finishes, under force account with their own staff, thus reducing overall project costs.
