Borough of South Toms River Municipal Building, Police Department & Municipal Court | Renovation
South Toms River, NJ
DMR provided design services for the renovation of a former daycare center into the new municipal headquarters and police station for the Borough of South Toms River. Previously, the Municipal Offices, Police Station and Municipal Court occupy the basement of a 7,000 square foot facility, that did not adequately meet municipal, police or community needs. DMR first completed a plan and cost estimate for the Borough, then continued under contract with the owner of the building to provide construction documents.
The new facility is 10,000 square foot vacant daycare center and will be retrofitted for the borough’s multiple uses, such as a separate entry, two holding cells, a processing room and interview room. It will also house all municipal offices and its council chambers/municipal court. The new location will also provide for a community room and space for the Borough’s Office of Emergency Management.
