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.
