O'Hara municipal building expansion allows more room for police
A $438,000 remodel at the O'Hara municipal building will add space for the police department, a small conference room and second-floor storage.
Expansion is under way.
Township Manager Julie Jakubec said the space is much-needed for the police department, which includes 14 officers and Chief Jim Farringer.
There will be a new squad room and locker room for officers.
Work at the building, 325 Fox Chapel Road, will add about 1,000 square feet.
“Some other items include reworking the current file room, relocation of the server room and an added plan and map room,” Jakubec said.
There also will be new flooring throughout the building.
Construction is focused in the rear of the building and is expected to last through March.
Lawrenceville-based architects Moshier Studio landed the contract. The group designed the McGinnis Education Center at Camp Guyasuta, also in O'Hara.
