Collingswood Borough is moving its police and fire departments into a brand new facility after many complaints about their currently outdated facility. The building is only in the early design phases, but is planned to be a multi-story, 30,000 SF facility equipped with sophisticated security features and updated amenities. Bala was chosen to perform the technology infrastructure design services and security for the project.
The approximately 30,000 SF facility will have a four-bay garage and public-facing main entrance with a combined reception area. The fire department will be situated towards the front of the building and the police operations toward the rear.
Bala’s design services for the project consist of the documentation and specification for the voice and data network cabling, CCTV camera and access control system, and audio/visual systems for this new 3 Level building.
Part of the security system includes the design of a state-of-the-art access control and CCTV systems for the jail/holding area and sally port located on the ground level of this building.
Other proposed amenities for this new building will include office spaces, a shared conference center/training room, fitness facility with lockers and a dining facility.
