The existing Borough of Lansdale Police Department facility was undersized and in need of targeted improvement. However, The Police Department had to maintain full operation throughout the construction process. The new municipal building combined the Borough Administrative functions and the Police for greater efficiency. More
The building uses a two story lobby to allow the public to be better served. The building houses the Police Department offices, cell block area, and secure sally port on the ground floor; as well as the public Meeting Room and Caucus Room directly from the main lobby. The second floor holds the offices of the Borough Manager, Planning and Zoning, and the Finance Department. The predominantly brick and glass building preserves the old town hall walls and connects a new transparent public lobby to bridge the police and municipal functions.
