Middletown Police Station
Middletown, RI


Work began with a Space Needs Analysis for both the Police and Fire Departments. Richard Lawrence, AIA then prepared schematic design documents and cost estimates for a new police station. After approval at a town referendum, authorization was given to develop detailed construction documents and bids were opened in February 2008 with construction complete in mid July of 2009.  The two-story facility replaces the town’s 6,000 SF overcrowded building that had numerous deficiencies and inadequate separation of security levels.  This new headquarters includes a public meeting/training room directly off the entrance lobby and has been designed to blend with adjacent residential architecture.
