Falls awaits construction on municipal building project


Progress continues on Falls Township’s major renovation project at its municipal campus.

Recently, the supervisors voted unanimously to award the mechanical construction contract to Allstates Mechanical, Ltd. in the amount of $4,227,215; and the electrical construction contract to QPI Electrical in the amount of $4,490,000, which includes the fire alarm alternate of $209,000.

Construction is expected to begin in late September and continue for approximately two years.

Township administration offices and the police department relocated to a temporary space at 430-450 Lincoln Highway last month. The Supervisors, planning commission and zoning hearing board have been holding meetings at the Middletown municipal building since June. Both the temporary relocation and meeting space will remain in place until the municipal building construction is complete.

At its July meeting, the board voted unanimously to award the general construction contract to Rycon Construction in the amount of $19,230,000; and award the plumbing construction contract to Myco Mechanical, Inc., in the amount of $2,343,000.

At its meeting in May, the Supervisors authorized issuance of $20,055,000 in bonds to cover the municipal building construction costs. Falls will contribute $15 million from its general fund toward the project.

The bond would be repaid by December 2033.
