Public Safety Facilities Study
Barre, MA

DiMarinisi & Wolfe has been hired by the Town of Barre to conduct a comprehensive study of its public safety building needs, including facilities for the Fire Department, Police Department and B.E.A.R.S., which is Barre's emergency medical service.

As part of the study services, DiMarinisi & Wolfe has programmed the long-range facility requirements for each public safety department, reviewed renovation and expansion options at the existing public safety facility sites, assessed potential sites for a new central public safety facility to accommodate the police, main fire station and B.E.A.R.S., assessed site options for a new fire substation to serve the southern section of the town, developed schematic designs for all of the various options (central facility, additions / renovations and substation), prepared construction cost estimates for each of the options and advised the Town of advantages and disadvantages of each scheme.

The results of the Study are being used by the Town in its long-range capital facility planning.
