Laying the Groundwork for a New HQ

Since 1986, the Provincetown Police Department had been using a former funeral home as its headquarters. The building dated back to 1975 and had long been deemed inadequate as a public facility for the Town’s law enforcement. Deficiencies, building code violations, and periodic flooding have plagued the old police station, in addition to its inability to accommodate modern communication equipment.

Approved by the Town Meeting, the new Provincetown Police Station is a 13,900-sf two-story building prominently located at the intersection Route 6 and on Jerome Smith Road, the main highway through which most visitors enter the town. Our team provided land surveying services to reconfigure the existing parcel and create a new parcel for the police station, as well as civil engineering design for grading, utilities, sanitary sewage, stormwater drainage, and parking lot design.

The site improvements were coordinated with two other Town projects, the Shank Painter Road improvements at the intersection with Route 6 and the proposed Town sewer pump station expansion at the Veterans of Foreign Wars property across the street. The parking lot design provided our engineers avoided the disturbance of an existing town owned on-site disposal system.
