Public Safety Design

Public Safety

Creating a public safety design that matches distinct facility needs.

With experience in workplace architecture, our public safety designs emphasize the value of specialized layouts focused on operational efficiency. Our team has the experience necessary to create collaborative environments that are uniquely tailored to clients' long-term goals through our scenario planning process. Rather than just looking at the design from a square foot number, we focus on establishing spaces that allow for multiple usages throughout the day. We focus on staff efficiency, state-of-the-art features, and connections to the community through this approach.

Police Building Design

Efficiency of Operations

To ensure law enforcement agencies can accomplish tasks effectively, they need an operationally efficient work environment that supports their work styles and spaces that supports the sequence of activities to complete tasks. To identify this sequence of activities, we will take each task and run it through scenario planning to ensure functionality. Through our experience in public safety design, we've also understood the underlying qualities of a modern workplace design can also improve productivity. Our designs reinforce the value of transparency and collaboration by adding glass between areas to reinforce connections and by creating multiple areas for casual interactions. By prioritizing collaboration in the design process, we can create a layout that improves efficiency by reinforcing active communication and participation.

Additional Facility Features

Beyond improving the efficiency of operations in a law enforcement center, we also aim to provide additional features that address key needs. We’ve been able to specialize in facility features by working closely with our public safety clients over the years, including evidence storage space, shooting ranges, areas for tactical training and additional flexible space options. Through discussions with stakeholders during the design process, we're able to assess how the station's needs can fit into our public safety designs.

Connections to the Community

We understand the need for police stations to be designed as a vital resource for community emergencies. On top of this, we believe it is also essential for a station to connect with community members in non-emergency settings. By including community room spaces and additional areas for community connection, we are able to provide locations for events. Providing avenues for interaction is critical for continually improving interactions between community members and officers. We strive to make stations welcoming for people in the community by including comfortable seating, warm reception area and additional stress-reducing features.

Our designs seek to accomplish several facility goals, including increased operational efficiency, decreased capital costs and an overall increase in workplace morale. Beyond workplace design, we strive to create energy-efficient, technologically savvy, and durable structures for long-term usage. By incorporating our previous design experience with collaborative stakeholder discussion, we can create a public safety design that matches distinct facility needs.
