Parker, Colorado is a suburb in the southeastern Denver metro area and has seen a significant economic growth over the past 10 years. As the city continues to grow, so does the Parker Police Department, in staff as well as materials like evidence and equipment that they need on a day-to-day basis. With a facility of only 15,000 square feet, the previous police department had no more room to grow and they began using offsite storage. Even with offsite facilities, Parker PD needed a more complete solution that would allow them to have all of their department functions under one roof.
Planning for the new police department began by looking at other facilities and finding out what would provide optimal efficiency and organization within their space. Members from every department within Parker PD were able to work directly with the architects and designers to ensure that each department received exactly the storage solution they needed. With an increase of over 30,000 square feet, the new Parker PD building was designed to be not only open and inviting for the community but also environmentally friendly, incredibly efficient and organized.
In order to maximize their space and efficiency, the architect suggested Spacesaver storage systems which are specifically designed to fit each department’s needs.Everything that has been added or integrated into the new Parker PD building gives each department the ability to have the space and facilities they need to do their jobs and serve their community more efficiently. Most importantly they were able to go from storing material offsite because of the lack of space in an old facility to bringing everything together in one building.
