DTC initially provided site selection services in association with the feasibility analysis and site selection of a new public safety facility in downtown Greenwich.
The project presented the challenge of designating an appropriate building site with the tight confines and limited space availability in Downtown Greenwich. DTC provided the owner several alternatives, taking into account municipal, police and fire department needs that included phasing of construction and swing space scheduling to accommodate municipal operations. Ultimately the Town opted to implement phased demolition and construction to build the new public safety facility adjacent to the existing police station, which will then be razed for the construction of the facility’s parking garage.
Extensive property acquisition, site remediation and utility relocation were required to prepare the site for construction.
DTC provided design analysis in addition to construction documents for a 172 vehicle, 72,560 square foot, four story precast concrete parking structure as well as the adjacent 65,400 square foot, five story steel framed police headquarters and detention facility located in the Greenwich Avenue Historic District of Greenwich, CT. DTC also provided shop drawing review and construction special inspection services for the project.
For the design phase of the project, DTC provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural, site/civil and landscape architectural services for the design of a new public safety complex in Greenwich.
Due to the compact site, DTC designed rooftop pent mechanical systems screened from adjacent buildings.
