City of Clearwater Police Department District 3 Operations & Training Center
This project consisted of demolition of the previous Clearwater Police Department District 3 Substation built in 1983 and the construction of a new 21,625 SF concrete tilt-wall facility built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane equipped with redundant services necessary for this essential facility.
This new facility houses an Emergency Operations Center, police training classrooms, simulation training space, offices, workout space and locker rooms, as well as a 6,100 cubic feet underground stormwater vault under the parking lot.
The existing K9 training/boarding building, seizure & impound yard and 100-yard outdoor firing range remained occupied and fully accessible during the construction duration. The existing firing range training classroom buildings also remained in use, for the first phase of the work with a temporary access drive and parking area completed during the initial phase.
The construction was phased to commission the new systems and integrate the audio visual components and video walls to facilitate the relocation of operational areas into the new buildings which then allowed the site areas being used for the temporary training areas to be demolished and the balance of the sitework completed.
