Westminster Public Safety Facility
Westminster, Vermont –
The Westminster Public Safety Facility is a Vermont State Police barracks facility with a PSAP (public-safety answering point) for Vermont E-911 and offices for other Vermont law enforcement such as Fish & Wildlife. The building contains the PSAP, offices, locker rooms, Troopers room, processing, lock-up and meeting rooms within 20,500 square feet on one floor.
The building is heated with two pellet-fired bio-mass boilers and hot water is generated with solar panels. The building has unique design requirements in that it was the first building of its kind in the State of Vermont required to conform to the requirements of NFPA 1221-2012, “Standard for the Installation, Maintenance, and Use of Emergency Services Communications Systems. Conformance with this Standard required close coordination and collaboration with State of Vermont Department of Fire Safety to apply in a reasonable manner for the use of the building. Engineering Services of Vermont was proud to engineer the mechanical, plumbing, electrical and fire protection systems as part of the Design Team led by Arnold & Scangas, Architects.
