The Philadelphia Headquarters and Maintenance Garage for the Pennsylvania State Police has gone out to bid, with construction beginning soon. BKP’s design for the 54,000-square-foot facility incorporates sustainable, energy-efficient features, advanced stormwater management, and enhanced security. Thoughtful project phasing will enable construction to take place on the same site while the existing building remains fully operational. The project represents another successful partnership among BKP, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania State Police, following completion of the Trevose Troop M State Police Barracks in Bensalem.
