NYC DDC NYPD 116th Precinct Station House, New Precinct Station House

Client: NYC DDC

Architect: Dattner Architects

Location: Queens, NY

Size: 45,000 SF

Completion Date: Est. Quarter 1 2024

As part of a DDC Requirements Contract with Dattner Architects, JFK&M is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design services for the construction of a new 45,000 square foot 116th Precinct Station House in Queens to reduce current response times and expand coverage throughout the community.

An important aspect of the project design is to consider its relationship to the surrounding neighborhood and passage to the LIRR. The proposed site, currently a parking lot utilized by the 105th Precinct Satellite facility for staff and department vehicles, is bounded by one and two family residential buildings to the north, an elevated Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) line to the south, a vacant lot to the east, and the 105th Precinct Satellite facility to the west. A pedestrian path links the LIRR Rosedale station underpass to North Conduit Avenue along the western boundary of the proposed site.

The new station house will accommodate a variety of programmatic functions related to law enforcement and will prioritize DDC’s Guiding Principles of Growth, Equity, Sustainability, Resiliency, and Healthy Living. The program spaces will include administrative offices, staff common areas, officer training rooms, client booking and processing areas, including a detention area with secure cells, and evidence and vehicle storage. The precinct will house a stress reduction room and lockers for the officers and staff, and a community space with a separate public entrance. A parking area adjacent to the station house is required, with a gasoline supply system for NYPD’s automated fuel dispensing system. Site work will also include low-maintenance landscape, accessible paths, and site lighting.

Besides providing MEP/FP design services, JFK&M is conducting studies in regards to the DDC Energy Conservation Measures for a Photovoltaic system and a Geo-thermal system to determine if those measures can be implemented into the project.

The design also includes providing emergency power for the entire building due to the need to keep the NYPD functional at all times. The project is being designed to a LEED Gold Certification level.

The project design phases are being accelerated and it is currently at the completion of the design development phase.
