We delivered a facility that exceeded the requirements and expectations of the Pennsylvania State Police
West Middlesex, PA (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
Veon Companies, a leading construction and real estate services company located in West Middlesex, Pa., recently completed fit-out of the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) facility in Lamar, Pa. PSP occupied the building April 1, 2014.
The 9,160-square-foot facility was designed to reduce operational expenses for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, thereby making more efficient use of taxpayer dollars. The facility features a range of state-of-the-art technologies, including geothermal heating and cooling and energy efficient lighting systems. Veon Companies designed the building and chose materials to withstand wear and tear and increase the structure’s longevity and security.
A commitment to detail is vital in creating easily managed, lasting facilities, which is central to Veon Companies’ President Bryce Veon’s approach for public sector projects. “While it’s always important to give a client an efficient, durable structure, our public sector clients receive the most sustainable, high-performance facilities to improve productivity, reduce operating costs and encourage environmental responsibility. At every step of the Lamar project, we worked toward this goal, and we delivered a facility that exceeded the requirements and expectations of the Pennsylvania State Police,” Veon says.
The PSP Lamar station is located on a five-acre parcel next to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Lamar facility. The site was selected based on its central location, which allows for improved response by state police to incidents. A large approach area allows helicopters to safely land and take off on site, enabling search, rescue and emergency assistance from the PSP aviation unit.
The Pennsylvania Department of General Services (DGS), Bureau of Real Estate (BRE) and the state police selected Veon Companies’ proposal and design for the new facility based on a sound, innovative plan and Veon Companies’ reputation for developing other high-performance facilities. “We’ve completed five PSP facilities, and we have one of the best designs,” Veon says. “The Lamar location was modeled after our Harrisburg (Jonestown, Pa.) project, which has been recognized for its outstanding operational and design features.”
PSP is planning a dedication ceremony and open house at the new Lamar station in late June.
Veon Companies responded to a request for proposals with the winning design and floor plan and secured and proposed several potential sites in the area, leading DGS and BRE to select the Lamar location. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania leases the site from Veon Companies.
