Project: POLICE BUILDING, FLINT TOWNSHIP
Client: Charter Township of Flint
Location: Flint, Michigan
Date: Completed 2003
Size: 26,729 sq. ft.
Engineer: CDPA Architects, Inc.
A new two-story Police building was designed for the Flint Township Police Department. Two major challenges were presented to the design team. One was, of course, limited funds for the project needs, and the other, a difficult site to develop.
The densely wooded site was a challenge. It was irregular shaped, bordered by railroad tracks on the rear, bisected by an open drain and has a 30 ft. rise from the road to the rear of the site. The west portion is planned for a park development which will initially share the Police public parking lot.
