Fondren Police Station
Location: Houston, TX
Year Completed: 2009
The City of Houston and the Houston PoliceDepartment (HPD) are seeking to redefine how the Department’s physical infrastructure is implemented through-out the City. The primary design goal was to establish an adaptable prototype that can be replicated for future stations.
The existing Fondren Police Station currently operates out of a 5,000 SF ‘storefront’. The
state of the current facility does not allow for the delivery of modern police services, and poses a safety hazard to officers, to arrestees, and to the public.
The new, single-story 29,000 SF proposed Fondren Police Station will include a public lobby, large public meeting room, patrol, investigations and locker functions. The station will be designed to comply with the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) standards for Certified Level LEED™ Certification.
“The firms (R+S and RdlR) both demonstrated rewarding expertise when responding to the requests of the affected HPD employees. Effective communication, teamwork, and flexibility in adapting to team priorities, has resulted in a successful project that exactly fits our needs.”
