Project DescriptionThe new 33,000 sf. Fiesta District Police Facility in Mesa, Arizona replaces a functionally obsolete existing facility that was unsafe, overcrowded, and non-code conforming. In collaboration with City and Police Department personnel, Saemisch + Di Bella Architects prepared a detailed analysis of functional and space needs for both current and projected scenarios. Following site
selection, design work was undertaken, exploring several different options for meeting police operations requirements while maintaining sensitivity to community development plans and the immediate site context. Throughout the process, budget conformance was maintained by the consultant team and the project was able to move directly into bidding and construction. Materials and forms were selected to relate to climate and contextual features, with all interior colors and materials meeting the special requirements of law enforcement operations.
