DMR Architects completes plan for municipal/public safety building
South Toms River, NJ —Hasbrouck Heights-based DMR Architects recently completed a plan and cost estimate for South Toms River to relocate its Municipal Offices, Police Department and Municipal Court from its current 7,000 s/f facility to a 10,000 s/f vacant daycare center that would be retrofitted for the borough’s multiple uses.
The proposed project at 19 Double Trouble Rd. will address the borough’s need for the police to have a separate entry, two holding cells, a processing room and interview room. It will also house all municipal offices and its council chambers/municipal court. The new location will also provide for a community room and space for the Borough’s Office of Emergency Management. “We’ve done a dozen municipal or public safety buildings, and while there is a common thread that they all need to be upgraded to accommodate for technology and other issues, how we get to the final building is always unique to that town” Lloyd Rosenberg, AIA, president and CEO of DMR Architects, said.
