Colantonio Inc. Celebrates Topping Off of Hingham Public Safety Project

HINGHAM, MA — General contractor Colantonio Inc. recently marked the completion of the steel frame structure of the new Hingham Public Safety Facility with a traditional topping-off ceremony. The event was attended by residents, town officials, and local public safety personnel.

The new, three-story, 49,000-square-foot facility, which abuts the Hingham Shipyard, will house the Hingham Police and Fire Departments, the Emergency Operations Center, training rooms, detention area, administrative offices, locker rooms, break areas, and kitchens. A two-story, 94-space parking garage will be added, along with additional parking for the public. The building was designed with a flat roof and similar massing to be consistent with the buildings that surround the site.

Sustainable elements include a variable refrigerant flow HVAC system, which is a ductless, energy-efficient system used for both air conditioning and heating. Radiant heating will be installed in the concrete slab of the apparatus bays, which will allow the building to efficiently recover from the cold air that may rush in when a bay door opens.

The project architect is Kaestle Boos Associates, and Hill International serves as the owner’s project manager.

Colantonio Inc. is a Holliston-based construction management and general contracting firm with self-performance capabilities.
