FIRM COMPLETES SEVERAL PUBLIC SAFETY FACILITIES FOR PORT ORANGE, FLA.
ORLANDO, Fla. (March 25, 2010) – C.T. Hsu + Associates announced today the completion of a new police headquarters for the City of Port Orange, Fla.
The new 56,800 GSF police headquarters located at 4545 Clyde Morris Boulevard is nearly four times larger than the 25-year-old facility it replaces and designed to accommodate future expansion of the police force. Features include private interview rooms for officers and victim advocates, additional space for the traffic division, a break room, gender-specific bunk rooms, a training room and additional holding cells, as well as a 6,000 GSF storage building to house police motorcycles, an emergency response van, evidence vehicles and a K-9 kennel area.
Last year, the firm completed two new fire stations for the City:
- 6,948 GSF Spruce Creek Fire Station 72 located at 6027 Central Park Boulevard
- 6,948 GSF Town West Fire Station 75 is located at 1701 Town West Boulevard
Each fire station is designed to accommodate up to four fire apparatuses and six personnel and features the latest “green” technology, including solar water heating features, thermal performance/impact resistant windows, motion-sensor lighting, water-saving faucets and a roof that is insulated beyond code requirements. The fire stations cost $1.6 million each to construct with funding coming from a voter-approved General Obligation (G.O.) Bond.
