A New Police Facility for Bangor, Maine: This project involved the development of a new 41,000 SF police department facility to house departmental program spaces, public services spaces, and vehicular storage for a growing city police force.
Program features included public service spaces, police administrative and support spaces, public meeting and education space, police vehicle garage space, a crime lab, Bangor emergency dispatch, a firearms range, booking space, police sally port and garage space, parking enforcement offices, and support storage. The design process involved detailed programming meetings with city management and police department staff and required the evaluation of the program for location on three different project sites.
The final design included the renovation of an existing one-story bus garage and the addition of a 3-story office tower. To support future growth, the office tower was designed so that a 4th story could be added if needed. Soil issues and site pollution required detailed foundation design to support the building and protect the health of building occupants.
Construction Cost was $7,133,852, delivered under a traditional Design-Bid-Build contract.
Carter Architectural Design staff led, managed, and designed this project while employed at WBRC Architects/Engineers.
