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-sf NYPD Precinct Station in Queens to reduce current response times to emergencies and expand coverage throughout the community.

The 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 program includes 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. The parking area is designed with EV charging station along with a fueling station adjacent to the station house.

Besides providing MEP/FP design services, JFK&M conducted studies in regards to the DDC Energy Conservation Measures. This include a photovoltaic system and a Geothermal system and determining which measures can be implemented into the project.  Photovoltaic panels were ultimately designed as well as an implementation of a chiller plant to support energy recovery.

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 completed and the project is under construction.
