PUBLIC SAFETY

 

First responders put their lives on the line every day to protect our communities. We believe that the design of efficient, distinguished, and durable public safety facilities is of paramount importance. We recognize that these buildings not only serve as a beacon in the community, but also must function properly to increase the safety of the community they serve.  

At the heart of every successful public safety project is a strong partnership and experience. We partner with our clients and their community to understand the intricacies of their needs, desires, and goals. Our broad experience has equipped us with the knowledge of the technical complexities of these building types and enabled us to develop innovative design solutions that are context and user specific.

Our comprehensive portfolio includes police stations, sheriff’s offices, courthouses, jails, fire stations, and EMS facilities. We provide a wide range of services including space-need studies, existing building analysis for adaptive reuse, architectural and engineering services, interior design, and furniture selection & procurement. ADW has provided architecture, planning, or interior design services for more than 55 Fire, Police and EMS projects. The following are just a few examples.
