Public Safety

Portsmouth Police Station

Portsmouth, RI

The project began as a feasibility study to determine if a new Police Station could be built on the same site as the existing building (1975, 5,000 SF) along with a Space Needs Study to develop a building program. We were able to make a new building possible while maintaining the current Police Station operations on this tight site. The new station will be 25,322 SF.

At the completion of the study, DRA aided the Town by writing RFP’s for a hazardous material survey; Phase 1 environmental Assessment; and test borings and geotechnical report.

The project proceeded to referendum where it was approved.

The Town Required that the project be re-advertised for architects before proceeding with the next phases. DRA was fortunate to be re-hired to perform the work through construction.
