In 2011, the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) engaged Kleinfelder to conduct a feasibility study for the Lower Basin State Police Barracks. The barracks are located in the Lower Lock Guardhouse, a National Register-listed Italian Renaissance Revival building. Our work focused on the ability of the site and its buildings to support the technological and square footage needs of the State Police, while promoting historic preservation and cultural resources stewardship.
The guidance document helps the client determine the best use of the site as the project develops. Furthermore, we evaluated the condition of the structure and its mechanical systems and outlined an environmental regulatory compliance strategy, which proved complex due to the site’s prominent location and National Register status.
