The Sharonville Police Department needed its own facility – it had taken residence in the city’s municipal building where it had far outgrown its needs. This police department will soon upgrade from a shared facility to a new home that spans two buildings.
Building 1 will have individual office spaces as well as open-office layout areas, dispatch, and training spaces. It will also have a storm shelter that is designed to withstand tornadoes and the weight of the structure above collapsing onto it. Building 1 will be steel-framed with cold-formed steel framing walls.
Building 2 will be constructed from CMU panels. Inside, there will be a holding area, evidence storage, forensics department and garage maintenance.
Outside, the team designed steel canopies over police vehicle parking. Both buildings are designed to accommodate the department’s future growth.
