Public Safety Building

Lake Worth, Florida

The 98,540-SF Public Safety Building integrates the criminal justice, fire safety, emergency medical technician, and emergency medical services departments. Phase I of the project featured a 18,000-SF, 24-lane handgun and rifle range and classroom facility. Phase II created a new training center to simulate emergency situations for public safety personnel, as well as offers a lobby/reception area, auditorium and computer lab. Specialized lab planning included extensive forensic labs. Labs for trace evidence and toxicology as well as dirty and wet labs comprise part of the overall forensic suite. A blackout lab, photography / microscopy lab, and associated prep and storage spaces completed the new full service space.
