In 2020, we worked with Richardson officials to design and build a new standard for law enforcement facilities.

This award-winning police department takes into account the integral specifications–hardened facilities, durable materials, parking, storage, emphasis on natural light, acoustics, and integration into the natural environment for employee wellness, and the room for future growth–first responders need in a profession that goes 24/7/365.
