Police stations are considered essential services facilities which support our communities during major disasters. As such, these types of projects have many HVAC, Plumbing and Fire Protection requirements that impact the system design. In addition, it is important to meet with the police department law enforcement staff and administrators to ensure the design is tailored to their specific needs and operational requirements of the facility.
The Sonoma Police Station Modernization Project involved a complete remodel of the entire facility. All new HVAC, Plumbing and Fire Protection services were provided by 15000 Inc.
Ross Drulis Cusenbery Architects engaged 15000 Inc. to design modernize the facility; a challenge the engineers embraced to renovate a building with a limited service life to accommodate the long-term needs of the 24/7 Public Safety Facility.
The facility includes an Emergency Operations Center, Telecom Server Rooms, Interview Rooms, Locker Rooms, Community Meeting Facilities and Prisoner Holding Cells. All critical systems were provided with emergency power to ensure continuity of operations in any emergency.
