Project Description

Public safety training, intergovernmental cooperation, and equipment sharing are hot topics that are often discussed but rarely put into action. The opening of the new Public Safety building in Grosse Pointe City presented a chance to put those terms to work. DeMaria, along with the design team, worked to create and construct a facility that would streamline response time, improve safety, allow for shared police and fire training, and create a space for public safety personnel and citizens to collaborate. The 17,500 sf DPS facility includes a partial basement plus 2 levels, a training room for in house-training or community meetings, an added apparatus bay to accommodate fire equipment sharing, a fire training tower, and a virtual police simulator for real-life scenarios. The building also incorporates sufficient workspace for detectives from multiple communities to work cases or form major crime task forces. The Court facility includes interior logistical renovations to the existing DPS/Court Building. This work was phased to keep the courtroom operational.
