Plaistow Police & Fire // Plaistow, New Hampshire

The Town of Plaistow hired Dore + Whittier in 2014 to review a previous programming and site study and perform an existing conditions survey of the site, on recently acquired adjacent land, and the existing Public Safety Building.

The Design Team met with both the Fire and Police Departments to prepare an initial space needs analysis as the basis for single line conceptual plans. Several options included a separate Police Station as well as a Police Station addition to the existing Public Safety Building. The Town and Working Group (Police and Fire Departments) put forth the preferred option of:

  • Light Renovation to the existing 16,115 SF to upgrade for use as the Fire Station
  • Single-story 13,700 SF Police Station attached to the existing Public Safety Building
  • Construction of an access road
