Snyder Construction Group Partners With the City of Hollister to Build Its Police Department & Public Works
The joint PD headquarters and public works facility is the city's first new building the city has constructed in 25 years. The new facility replaces two older buildings that the city had outgrown as Hollister's population expanded over the past two decades.
The city built the project on a 5-acre site. The 9,490-square-foot building will have better security features than the previous PD headquarters, according to KY3 News.
For example, it has bollards inside of it to keep from ramming if someone tries to run a vehicle into it. The windows are strategically placed, so there's not much visibility into the building, but it also lets in natural light.
"We have one cell at the old facility, and we will have two here. We'll have a larger evidence room, which is needed. We will have a larger training room," Hollister Police Chief Preston Schmidt said.
Additionally, the building will have conference rooms and locker rooms.
A separate, 11,915-square-foot building also is being constructed on the site for use by the city's maintenance crews.
This new building should accommodate the PD and public work's needs for the next 50 years, according to CPWG Engineering Project Manager Todd Chandler speaking to KY3 News.
The total project size is 21,405 square feet. Snyder Construction is the general contractor, and Treat Architects PC is the architect. Engineers include J&M Engineering LLC, structural; Cribb Philbeck Weaver Group Inc., civil; and Building Systems Design Group LLC, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing.
