Our design task was to combine the University Police Station, Campus Information Services and a four-story parking structure into one program. As a pedestrian-only campus, additional parking was in great demand, and the University Police Station and Information Services Center had been operating from temporary facilities. They were in need of a secure facility that was conveniently located. We situated the new parking structure next to the City’s public transit hub, to relieve parking problems, and the new Police Department and Information Services building next to the parking structure, to allow for police vehicles to be parked on the lower level of the structure, while also allowing for a Sally Port, holding cells, and firearms storage. The project was certified LEED Gold exceeding the University’s standard of LEED Silver Certification.
