Design Services for the Replacement of Four State Police Facilities

Owner: New Jersey Turnpike Authority
Location: Multiple Locations, N.J.

Gannett Fleming Architects, Inc. performed engineering and architectural services to replace the outdated New Jersey State Police (NJSP) barracks in Bloomfield, Moorestown, Newark, and Bass River, N.J., with four programmed-sized buildings. We developed a new state-of-the-art prototypical building design that is flexible and adaptable for three of the locations and created a distinct building design for the Newark site. The project also required a detailed site analysis for selection of two new sites.

Sustainability standards were integrated into the design of the facilities. The new prototype consists of a one-story building of approximately 27,500 square feet with a 15,500-square-foot building footprint and a full basement. The Newark facility is 32,500 square feet with a 17,500-square-foot building footprint with a full basement. The building components include a public vestibule/entrance/waiting area, administrative areas, break room/kitchenette, bathrooms, and locker rooms. Each facility was designed to be sustainable, fit the needs of the NJSP, and comply with current codes and CALEA standards. Security and hardware standards were integrated into the design.

Gannett Fleming Architects, Inc. developed cost-effective contract documents; managed the development of plans, reports, and specifications; frequently coordinated and communicated with the NJTA & NJSP; obtained all required permits; and managed the scope, schedule, and budget. Gannett Fleming Architects, Inc. also authored contract standards for NJTA facilities to be followed in future design projects.
