City of El Mirage Police Substation
Owner: City of El Mirage
Square Footage: 20,000
Location: El Mirage, AZ
Description: Previously housing police operations in a series of trailers and modular buildings, the El Mirage Police Department hired Arrington Watkins to design a brand new police substation. The 20,000 SF facility contains administrative offices, evidence processing and storage, cells for both juveniles and adults, a firing range, K-9 facilities, and support rooms. The new station is the first building within a brand new civic and retail area being developed by the City of El Mirage. Arrington Watkins was required to design a building that not only met the requirements of the Police Department, but also fit the aesthetic character of the new civic development.
