Project Description

In order to prepare for the City’s growth, Sumter retained SCN Architects to perform a full assessment of the Police and Fire Department’s space needs. Based on our pre-planning efforts with the Fire Department, the City is anticipating a new Fire Station that will be between 18,000 and 22,000 square feet, with the exact size determined during Schematic Design. Also based on our pre-planning efforts with the Police Department, the City is anticipating a new Police Station that will be between 40,000 and 45,000 square feet, with the exact size determined during Schematic Design. These and other future facilities will be built on the site bounded by Lafayette Drive, East Calhoun Street, and Grier Street. The Programming and Master Planning of the entire site for the public safety components are complete. We are now in the Design Phase.

At the City’s request, we proposed a design agreement that was capable of providing all necessary design services from Programming through Construction Administration. The City has also requested that we propose the necessary design services for Fire and Police individually, but to also show the savings that the City would realize if both projects were performed together, under one agreement.
