Weatherford Public Safety Campus
The City of Weatherford wanted to build and move the Police Department to a new Public Safety Building to meet the demands of the growing department, new security and safety concerns and for the department to be closer to the historic center. The project is to serve as not only the new Public Safety Headquarters but also to act as symbol of strength and safety to the city and function as a landmark gateway at the entry to the historic city as one approaches from the direction of Fort Worth. The new Police Station is designed with future growth in mind, there are different levels of security. Mental and physical wellness of the Officers and Staff are on the forefront of the design, features include Natural light with views to the outside, exercise spaces including outdoor exercise courtyard, and 1/4 running track, there is a decompression courtyard, quiet/wellness rooms, the staircases are a highlighted feature in the design to promote movement.
