Saccoccio & Associates completes first of four public safety buildings
October 25, 2016
Saccoccio & Associates has completed the first of four public safety buildings it is designing for towns in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Construction of a new 11,000-square-foot police station for the town of Millis, Mass., was completed earlier this month. Millis police personnel are currently moving into their new home that includes a sally port, community room and dispatch area.
Saccoccio & Associates has also designed a new fire station in Millis with ground breaking expected later this Fall. The 9,700-square-foot station, slated for completion in the Winter of 2017, will include three apparatus bays, a community room, space for specialty equipment and sleeping quarters for firefighters.
Construction is also underway on two additions to the police station in Smithfield, which will nearly double the size of the existing facility. The new additions include a new community meeting room, a new office suite, men’s and women’s locker rooms, an evidence area and an Emergency Management Operations Center. The existing 12,000-square-foot building is also being remodeled, including redesigned office space and a new Dispatch Center.
Saccoccio & Associates has also been commissioned to design a new 22,000-square-foot fire station for the Town of Brewster, Mass. The design will be developed to fit in with the historic district’s aesthetic and features drive-through apparatus bays, a dispatch area, a community room, meeting room, an exercise room and sleeping quarters for six firefighters. This project is expected to break ground in late Fall with completion in the first quarter of 2017.
The Millis and Brewster projects are the first under Saccoccio & Associates' partnership with CDR Maguire. In January, Saccoccio & Associates acquired Mcguire's Architecture Division, assuming CDR Maguire's existing architecture portfolio. The two companies are also partnering on new projects with Saccoccio serving as CDR Maguire's Architect of Record. CDR Maguire is a national professional engineering and emergency management firm with more than 175 professionals and support staff located throughout the United States and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
