Cowan Associates, Inc. provided the field survey, land development design and structural design for the Lower Milford Township Municipal building. The building includes meeting space, municipal offices and the police station.
One interesting aspect of this project was the use of porous paving to reduce stormwater runoff and minimize the retention basin size. The building is a one-story brick and stud structure with wood roof trusses. Patterned shingles were used to simulate slate, which added to the barn aesthetic chosen to fit in with its rural surroundings.
