After years of planning, a new $20.5 million, 25,000-SF police station for the City of Augusta is being constructed across from the historic City Hall. The building’s exterior complements the limestone and granite structures in the State capital.
This new state-of-the-art building will include secure parking for police, two elevators, an evidence lab, interview rooms, a dispatch center, and a drive-through sally port to bring people in custody into the building. The building will also include a second-floor training room and fitness center for employees and a large, open public lobby. Roof-top solar panels on the building’s roof will provide electricity back to the grid.
The grade on the entire site is raised three feet to withstand major flooding that could occur on the nearby Kennebec River.
