Combined Police Department HQ and Fire Department Substation

Feasibility Study for New Police Department Headquarters and Fire Department Substation

Weston & Sampson prepared a feasibility study for a new police department headquarters and fire department substation for the City of Somerville, Massachusetts. The work included:

  • documenting existing conditions / deficiencies
  • interviewing key department staff
  • preparing a comprehensive space needs assessment
  • conducting a site selection analysis
  • developing conceptual alternatives
  • preparing order of magnitude project cost estimates.

Work also included meeting with city governing authorities to present the project for future funding. The site selection analysis included developing a site selection matrix and ranking each site to identify a preferred site to house the operations. Concepts were developed in a manner to combine police operations with the fire department substation with the goal of identifying possible shared spaces to reduce the overall program and cost of the project.
