This new 42,000 SF police headquarters project planned and designed by Police Facility Design Group will serve the needs of the growing city of Marion, Iowa for decades to come. The project design responds to two critical mandates from the police department – uncompromising functionality and design character the community can take pride in. The project is sustainably designed to take advantage of energy conservation measures possible within the project budget. The design team worked with an energy consultant and the local utility companies to maximize both life-cycle cost savings. The project accommodates all law enforcement operations including emergency communications and training. A tactical firing range was planned for the project and space is provided for future range construction in the basement area. A central lobby element connects all public contact points and includes a multi-purpose space for in-service training and community meetings.
Completed in November 2013, the project was completed under a build-to-suit lease-purchase arrangement with Miron Construction.
