Renovation, Revitalization, Reuse for New Services
Conversion of an existing building to new use requires a thorough assessment of needs and desired functionality, followed by the architectural design skills to make it happen. Adaptive reuse can save time, construction, and implementation costs by utilizing conveniently-located existing structures—particularly within developed urban areas—rather than having to construct new facilities.
The experts at Securitecture have successfully converted industrial manufacturing facilities into an arrestee processing center and county jail annex; transformed a middle and high school building into a police, law enforcement, city court, and community center; and adapted other commercial structures into highly-efficient criminal justice and law enforcement centers.
Other renovation challenges have involved maintaining the integrity of historically-significant justice buildings while increasing their functionality and cost-efficiency. Meticulous restoration of architecturally-significant features has been accomplished while updating HVAC, plumbing, lighting and security systems to state-of-the-art technologies. Space-constrained historic structures reconfigure to provide for sufficient office, courtroom, and storage space, and also allow for future expansion and growth. Adjacent buildings have been acquired and adapted to meet the needs for expanded justice facilities. New construction was also designed to complement many of these historic buildings.
The range of experience at Securitecture provides for an optimum solution to meet your facilities needs, whether starting from the ground up or leveraging existing assets. View a list of criminal justice and public safety experience here.
