Andover Public Safety Center

After completing a feasibility study for the Town of Andover, our firm was hired to design the new public safety complex, which houses the police and fire departments, Emergency Medical Response, a firing range, and a tiered meeting and training room that can also serve as the town's Emergency Management Operations Center. A dramatic 2-story lobby with slate flooring, maple paneling, and split-faced masonry connects the fire and police departments while providing a welcoming public entryway. All public interaction occurs in this lobby area, maintaining the security of the rest of the building. When completed the project was 52,000 square feet.
