BY REBECCA BENNET — In Aug. 2015, the city solicited for professional consulting services as it prepares to renovate the former BB&T Bank Building at 3505 Hamilton Street. The Hyattsville City Council previously approved the space to house the Hyattsville City Police Department.

The firm will help the city develop a request for proposals with the standards that a police department needs, Hyattsville City Department of Public Works Director Lesley Riddle said.

From the six bids that came back, the council authorized a contract with JMT for the services not to exceed budgeted funds of $500,000, which a city memo said includes a concept design, interviewing the design and construction firms, execute third party inspections and final commissioning of the building.
