Pennsylvania State Police Philadelphia Headquarters and Maintenance Garage
The new PA State Police Headquarters for Philadelphia replaces a 50-year-old building at Belmont and Monument Avenues. The new building incorporates sustainable features including ground-source heat pumps; a double-ventilated curtain wall system on the east, south, and west facades; a green roof; and a state-of-the-art stormwater management system. Thoughtful project phasing permitted the existing building to be fully operational while the new building was constructed on the site. The three-story headquarters incorporates a steel structural frame, white precast concrete exterior cladding panels, and insulated glazing. The curtainwall gives the impression of transparency despite a police requirement for few windows. Clad in standing-seam metal panels, the garage is connected to the headquarters via an enclosed vehicle maintenance and circulation courtyard, which offers an added level of security for the facility.
