Senior Mechanical Engineer John Fusco and Office Manager Daniela Enkelmann joined Downes Construction, Jacunski Humes Architects, members of the Bethel Police Department, and others at Tuesday’s topping-off beam signing ceremony for the new Bethel Police Department in Bethel, Connecticut.
The 22,000 square-foot, two-story police station will include administration offices, a physical training area and locker rooms, prisoner processing and holding cells, a 911 call center, and an indoor firing range.
Kohler Ronan provided comprehensive MEP/FP Engineering and Technology Design services for the project.
The police station’s expected completion is set for the spring of 2018.
The University of Connecticut opened its new campus with a ribbon cutting ceremony in downtown Hartford. The new building represents the fulfillment of two goals: 1) creating a centrally located campus for the UConn Hartford students and faculty and 2) revitalizing the Front Street District by incorporating the previously vacant Hartford Times Building into the architectural fabric of the city.
“It will be part of the backbone of Hartford: a place of learning, engagement, and discovery, and a vibrant part of this neighborhood and the capital city as a whole,” said UConn President Susan Herbst.
The new building totals over 230,000 sf and accommodates classrooms, common spaces, academic department offices, science laboratories, student café/casual dining areas, and retail spaces.
