Petersburg Public Safety Building Study
As a supplement to our City Hall Study, Enteros Design was contracted to prepare a space needs assessment for the Petersburg Police Department. Through several interviews with police personnel, review of their department space list, and evaluation of the existing police facility, we compiled a detail space list and program summary. Using this programming study and information collected for Fire Administration, we developed two preliminary concepts for a new Public Safety Building. The first concept involved a phased renovation and expansion of the existing police station, construction of a new adjacent City Hall and parking deck, and renovation and expansion of the existing courthouse. This plan would create a government center in the heart of Old Town Petersburg. The second concept involved construction of a new City Hall and Public Safety Building on Washington Street along the primary entrance corridor into the City.
