BRUSLY POLICE COMPLEX
The new Police Headquarters and Fire Station for the town of Brusly was a long time coming. Their existing facilities were adequate but old and lacked many new technologies and conveniences essential for efficient operation. Holden Architects provided an up-to-date facility, giving the men and women in uniform modern working, living, and training environments while keeping within the constraints of a realistic budget. The project was broken into three construction phases, allowing the departments to continue working in their existing facilities while the new building was being built. This also allowed the city to spread the cost of the project over multiple fiscal years. The end result was a complex that will be able to serve the city for many years to come without placing an excessive burden on the tax payers today. The design features a jointly used engine bay wing sandwiched between Police and Fire Departments. While each department has its autonomy, the City has the benefit of sharing utility infrastructure and energy costs on a single structure and site. Holden Architects assisted the City in the preparation of grant and Capital Outlay requests. The total construction cost was approximately $3.3 Million.
