Central Pennsylvania’s biggest general contractor has been hired to build a new facility for the nation’s oldest continuously operating mounted police force.
York Township-based Kinsley Construction Inc. said this week that it is designing and building a new horse stable for the Baltimore City Mounted Police as part of a collaboration with the B&O Railroad Museum and First Mile Stable Charitable Foundation.
The facility is being built on the museum’s property in West Baltimore. The foundation is raising $2.5 million to support the project, which will include money for a facility endowment.
The 13,500-square-foot facility will include 12 horse stalls, grooming and bedding areas, wash bays and a tack room for equipment.
The new complex also will have an office, locker rooms, a kitchen and a laundry room for officers. In addition, there will be a demonstration and exercise area adjacent to the gallery area where visitors can observe stable activities.
Construction is expected to start this summer and wrap up by late fall, according to Kinsley.
Kinsley finished 2017 with $576.4 million in revenue.
