Architects Design Group, Inc. was selected to provide programming, master planning, interior design, and design services for the Village of Palm Springs Public Safety and Municipal Facility. This facility includes a Village Hall, Public Safety Facility, Recreational Center, Library, and a Community Center. The first phase of the project was to master plan the Village Facilities and the Public Safety Project for a timeframe of 25 years to anticipate future growth. The second phase was design services followed by construction administration.
The complex was master planned to permit continued use of existing City facilities until completion of the entirely new complex. Completed in 2004, the integration of all City services, including extensive recreational elements has been instrumental in creating a unified City Center. Supporting this basic design premise is a community “civic square”, with intensive landscaping, central fountain and activity areas for the general public.
The public safety facility is a “pure” complex in that the staff is cross trained in police and fire functions, and this is reflected in the design of the structure.
All facilities are design for future expansion, reflective of the rapid growth in population in Florida. In that context, all building systems (mechanical, electrical, emergency power, etc.) are designed to accommodate this anticipated future growth in an economical and efficient manner.
