So what is the project? The new building covers nearly 15,000 square feet on Santa Clara Avenue in the Village of Tupper Lake and will house both the Village Police and Fire Departments, as well as a community room with full kitchen and restroom facilities. This is a MAJOR improvement for the area, both the police and fire departments were outdated and inadequate in providing emergency services personnel with the facilities they need in a modern world. We have provided the fire department with a nearly 6,000 s.f. apparatus bay to house their vehicles as well as locker and restrooms, office and break areas, radio room, a storage and training mezzanine, as well as all the support facilities that a modern fire department requires.
The police department will now have a modern and secure facility with an enclosed sally port, locker rooms, patrol and booking, evidence storage, interrogation and holding rooms, a command center and offices.
The community room has a full professional kitchen attached and is supported by fully accessible rest rooms.
A modern and stylish exterior in gray has accents in blue metal panels and trim. We want to also thank Bette & Cring Construction for building this great facility. AEDA is very proud of our service to the community in helping to bring this project to completion and we wish all the emergency services personnel the best moving forward in their brand new home!
So there you have it, two brand new facilities! Moving forward I hope to be able to write a lot more about all of the exciting projects that AEDA is involved in currently and is excited about starting soon. We have a lot of great projects coming in the new year, so make sure to stop back here for updates as we move forward.
