emersion DESIGN was part of a design/build team for the new District 3 Police Station Headquarters. The 40,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility is located on the City’s west side where 200 of Cincinnati's finest cover 14 neighborhoods within the District. The design includes a public lobby, administrative spaces, investigations offices and work areas, patrol functions, file and records storage, property and evidence handling areas, support areas for non-police staff, and mechanic’s bays.
The District 3 Headquarters is the first LEED Platinum, Net-Zero Energy police station in the world! emersion DESIGN worked closely with the police staff, neighborhood committees, and city planners to provide an aesthetically appealing building design and to set aggressive goals for reducing life-cycle building costs while also maintaining function for police activities and security for occupants. The project serves as a catalyst to integrate both environmental and community sustainability.
