Bridgeport Public Safety

This facility is located directly adjacent to the new United Hospital Center at Jerry Dove Drive and strategically situated within a half mile radius of I-79 and the White Oaks and Charles Pointe Developments.

The building is a substation for the Fire and Police Departments of the City of Bridgeport.  The structure is a combination of load bearing masonry and structural steel frame with a decorative brick veneer.  The Apparatus Bay and supporting facilities are one story, slab-on-grade with an abundance of natural daylight.

The radiant gas heating, vehicle exhaust and high efficient lighting systems are integrated nicely into the exposed roof structure above.  The administrative offices along with each of the department’s support facilities are in a connected, two story masonry and steel frame structure.

This facility was designed as a 75-100 year structure to serve the needs of this ever growing region.  The building’s power is completely backed up by an emergency generator which will allow it to double as an emergency shelter in times of need.
