Scituate – CTA Construction Co. Inc. has been selected as the general contractor on the new Scituate Public Safety Complex. The $15.2 million project will provide a new headquarters for the Scituate police and fire departments.
The project architect is Dore & Whittier Architects, Inc.
The 19,770sf complex will include a joint dispatch center and an emergency operations center to coordinate response for large-scale events and natural disasters. The facility will include three bays for fire apparatus and a sally port for the police to safely transfer prisoners between police vehicles and the building.
The building will be divided into separate police and fire areas, with administrative offices, public records storage, prisoner processing and detention, lockers and a fitness room, and a training and community meeting room. In addition to constructing the facility, the project will include clearing the site, a six-acre parcel on the northeast corner of Mann Lott Road and Chief Justice Cushing Highway (Route 3A), as well as installing new site paving and plantings.
The project is expected to improve response times in the northern and western parts of Scituate, and bring police, fire, and emergency managed facilities into compliance with standards.
