Arlington Community Safety Building, Arlington, Mass.
After completing a masterplan that involved an inspection of existing systems and the conceptual identification of required upgrades and cost estimates, Architectural Engineers commenced MEP/FP design and CA services in two phases to allow continued occupancy throughout construction. The ADA compliant building features holding cells with a sally port, a fitness center, a briefing room/training center, and a renovated gun range. Work included exterior lighting, new exterior intake and exhaust hoods, plumbing drain body replacement, and a new sprinkler system with anti-ligature sprinkler heads in the holding cells. The existing building was upgraded to enhance police operations and provide community members with Arlington-based historical artifacts in an open, day-lit, and secure environment.
