Griffin first supplied services to assess police department facilities requirements, a project that included jail population projections, EOC analysis, police services options and staffing projections, and other factors. This was followed by a larger study that included Fire Department requirements (headquarters operations and station), and then an analysis of implementation approaches and an architectural program.
The City subsequently contracted with Griffin to provide Owner Representation services through the construction phase, including review of CO’s, conducting project meetings, and other management and owner-support services. The result is a large and important complex in the heart of the City, adjacent to the historic City Hall, with separate Police and Fire components, joined with a central lobby and shared building systems. A key element of the lobby is a Public Safety museum, showcasing the proud history of both departments.
