The City of Richardson has grown rapidly over the years and with the addition of new, large corporate development comes major change. More residents and businesses call for a greater, more efficient public safety system and the Richardson Public Safety Campus is the answer.
BRW has worked with the City to develop a cluster of buildings that meet the need and break new ground in public safety facility design. This ten acre campus includes a Fire Station, Police Headquarters and a 911|Dispatch. The new grounds tie a common thread among departments that already work together daily. Rather than spread out across the city, this new campus of dedicated buildings will increase respond time, encourage communication, and provide a welcoming environment for city staff and first responders.
Designed in tandem with a revitalization effort on Main Street, the Richardson Public Safety Campus has been created to provide security while placing an emphasis on community involvement. A large entry plaza and open green space along the Main Street corridor welcomes the public and interactive artwork encourages involvement (and Instagram-worthy selfies).
The Richardson Public Safety Campus protects and connects with the growing community and will add to the aesthetic of downtown Richardson for many years to come.
