The project recently received Final Land Development approval from the Board of Commissioners and the ground was broken during an official ceremony on June 11, 2016.             


Lansdale Municipal Complex, Lansdale Borough, Montgomery County, PA

Nave Newell worked closely with Spiezle Architectural Group to redevelop a 1.99 acre municipal complex. The existing Borough Police Department facility was undersized and in need of improvement. The project included renovating the existing Borough Hall and constructing a new Police/Administrative Annex with associated off-street parking. The 35,000 sf, two-story project preserved three exterior walls of borough hall and combined the administration and the police department into one facility for greater efficiency.

Nave Newell in conjunction with the architect prepared a sketch plan of the site depicting Borough Hall, Administrative Annex, revised parking, service/circulation areas as well as exterior sidewalks/plazas and other site improvements. Nave Newell also prepared the Construction Documents and permit plans necessary for Borough approvals and assisted the architect with LEED certification. Construction was completed in 2015.
