We will cover critical issues such as:

• Planning and Building the Station to Stand the Test of Time

• Pitfalls to Avoid During the Project

Plan & Design a Shared Facility  Session 3B

James Stumbo, Stewart-Cooper-Newell Architects

Multi-agency (Fire, Law Enforcement, City Hall, etc.) public safety facilities have increased in popularity due to potential cost savings. Through sensible design, shared/non-shared spaces and controlled access, a combined facility can be a comprehensive and cost effective solution to a local government’s public safety facility problem.
