Our Police & Law Enforcement Facility Design Process
Police Facility Needs Analysis & Assessment Study
As municipal facilities continue to operate well past their planned lifespan, they often become seriously overcrowded, suffer from a lack of sufficient infrastructure (HVAC, electrical, data, and telecommunication) and limp along with outdated security and safety systems. These environments invariably result in a decline in operational efficiency and morale of the user agencies. The first step in any new building project to correct or replace these deficiencies is to conduct a Space Needs Analysis or Needs Assessment.
Beyond looking at existing deficiencies we also use this stage of the process to evaluate opportunities to improve the overall sustainability of the facility as well as the mental & physical wellness of the first responders who occupy it.
Police Facility Design
Once our team of expert architects have identified your specific needs and goals for your new law enforcement facility, we can provide full architectural services to help design a facility that balances those needs with other constraints like budget and schedule.
We then seamlessly integrate into your team of existing architects, builders or designers to help manage and facilitate your project as well as provide recommendations for partners to deliver on the construction of your new police facilities.
Building Your Police Facility Design Team
Most architects serve their market areas well, and have good relationships within their own communities. However, every building type has different functional requirements that can sometimes be quite complicated. This is especially the case in the design of facilities for emergency first responders like police stations, 911 Dispatch Centers, Justice Centers, and Emergency Operations Centers. This is where Redstone Architects can help.
Redstone Architects offers expertise on these project types to local architects throughout the United States & Canada. We work in a team environment where Redstone Architects provides the upfront expertise to determine the project requirements and set the initial design parameters. The local architect provides many of the more typical detailed construction documents, interfaces with local engineering consultants, and works with local governmental agencies throughout the design and construction process.
