Denver District 1 Police Substation

Denver, CO

Creating Efficient Operations

Responding to the Denver Police Department's objective of addressing facility needs and optimizing use of its existing building inventory, we provided planning services to determine long-term space requirements in key districts and subsequently designed stations 1, 2, and 3 for the city. Each of the 40,000 SF district stations projects a community-oriented image within their residential neighborhoods, with a focus on operational efficiency and durability. The stations house patrol, investigation, training, and community service units and incorporate advanced technology and security measures.
