  • Description:
    • The days of Northampton County’s coroner working in outdated and cramped conditions, and driving around to local hospitals to conduct his work, will soon be over.
      
      County and local officials held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday for the new Northampton County Forensic Center.
      
      Construction will soon begin on the $11 million project, which is scheduled to be complete by September 2020. It will be located at the Gracedale nursing home campus next to the county’s 911 center in Upper Nazareth Township.
      
      
      A converted farmhouse at Louise W. Moore Park in Lower Nazareth Township has been the coroner’s office since 2005. The county currently uses Gracedale, Easton Hospital and St. Luke’s University Health Network facilities to hold bodies.
      
      The new facility will include a refrigerated cooler for bodies and two autopsy rooms with a viewing area that can accommodate law enforcement officers or medical students.
      
      It will also include a private reception room for family members coming to view their deceased loved ones.
      
      Northampton County breaks ground on ‘state of the art’ Forensic Center

      The 27,847-square-foot center will be equipped with solar panels on the roof, a five-bay garage and nine offices for the coroner’s staff.
      
      The facility is also designed with the county’s first digital forensic lab.
      
      “Today, you cannot prosecute a crime without downloading a cellphone,” county Executive Lamont McClure said.
      
      There will also be lockers to secure evidence. “The chain of custody must be preserved,” McClure said.
      
      County council has been discussing building a new facility for the last 30 years, according to McClure, and the new design will bring the county’s forensic system into the 21st century.
      
      The county has hired W2A Design for architectural services and project management firm Skanska to oversee construction.
      
      Sordoni Construction is the general contractor, with Wind Gap Electric handling electric and solar; JBM Mechanical for HVAC work; and Myco Mechanical for plumbing and fire protection.
