Roth Sheppard Architects have designed a new police facility for Windsor Police Department. This new police facility is a replacement for an existing 4,000 SF police department located in the basement of the Windsor Town Hall. The building has many sustainable features including solar photovoltaic roof, geothermal-based mechanical, operable ventilation windows and low VOC renewable and recyclable materials.
Here is a description from the architects, “Roth + Sheppard Architects worked with the town to evaluate alternative sites, program the police and court/ council, develop a schematic design pricing package, and determine alternative funding opportunities and construction delivery methodologies.
The police facility is located adjacent to the Towns new recreation Center and shares parking and community space. Secure police functions are carefully located along the perimeter to receive natural daylight yet maintain separation from the surrounding public parking. A day lighted interior corridor provides access to all police functions and connects to the covered patrol car parking. Booking, evidence / property, covered parking and locker room functions are all contained within a cost effective metal building shell while office, support and public functions are arranged in a more flexible, open plan environment.”
