    Manheim Borough Police Station

    Manheim’s new police station has a floor area of 10,600 SF, was designed by deVitry Architects and has a construction cost of approximately $2M. It replaces a station in the Manheim Borough that was too small, inefficiently organized and with limited parking. The new station will include a fitness center, locker rooms, a squad room, a training room, administrative/ reception rooms, files and supplies storage rooms, an armory and police equipment storage rooms, interview and holding rooms, evidence storage rooms, and offices for the Chief, detectives and sergeants. There will be an attached (3) bay garage plus a separate 6-vehicle carport and adequate public parking spaces. Construction is slated for completion by the end of 2016.

    Palmyra Borough Office, Palmyra PA

    This 14,500 SF facility allowed Palmyra Borough and the Police Department to consolidate many functions on one floor of one new building. On the Borough side, work spaces include offices, fireproof storage, equipment storage, Council Chambers and a District Justice Office. On the Police side, work spaces included offices, a patrol room and 2 locker rooms, an interview room and 4 holding cells, evidence and processing rooms, a firearms room, an EMA confer­ence room, and a garage. Clever use of attic storage trusses allowed all of the mechanical equipment to be located out of the Borough and Police Depart­ment spaces. Construction cost $2. 7 million.

    Heritage Center Quilt Museum, Lancaster, PA

    Downtown Lancaster’s Heritage Center Quilt Museum addition provided a new main entry, an expanded gift shop, a new ice cream parlor, additional exhibition space, and a new ADA elevator to the already successful destination. Cox Evans Architects blended a compatible masonry façade with dramatic and functional new interior spaces. Greenebaum Structures devised structural design solutions for several challenges, including shoe-horning a new structural steel frame into a tight urban site and stabilizing adjacent building foundations for the new project. Caldwell, Heckles & Egan was the contractor for this $1.5 million project. Governor Ed Rendell opened the museum in November to a large crowd of enthusiastic Lancastrians.

    Overlook Barn, Lancaster, PA

    Award Winner: Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County Award, 2007
    This historic Pennsylvania German bank barn was adapted by Manheim Township into Overlook Park’s community center, snack bar, and golf course support building. Hickey Architects and Caldwell, Heckles & Egan retained the exposed mortise and tenon heavy timber frame but added dramatic new windows, a glass front wall and a partial mezzanine. The existing silo was used as a new elevator shaft, and a bridge was built to connect the silo to the mezzanine level.
