The City of Manchester was in the process of launching a large-scale Public Works Complex project when it became apparent that the property could also accommodate room for a new planned Manchester Police Headquarters Facility.
ADG teamed with the Architect under contract with the City for the Public Works Complex. ADG developed a detailed Spatial needs assessment, updated the existing master plan for the entire complex to reflect the specialized needs of the Police Department, and developed the interior operational adjacencies for the new facility.
Working directly with the Manchester PD staff, ADG developed detailed design documents of all Interior Layouts, Specialized Equipment Coordination, Security Systems Design and Specification, and Development of the Critical Infrastructure Redundancies to support the facility. Departments housed in the new facility include Communications, Property and Evidence, Records, Investigations Division, Detectives Unit and a Street Crimes Unit.
Inclusive in the design is an 8-Lane Indoor Firing Range as a major component of the Training Unit. ADG’s expertise in Law Enforcement planning and design has ensured that the new facility is designed to stand up to the most rigorous inspections in the pursuit of CALEA Accreditation.
