Rochester Police Department Westside Patrol Headquarters
Relocation Management & Interior Design
Rochester, New York
The West Side patrol headquarters for the Rochester Police Department underwent an occupied renovation in which our team was challenged to create a five-phase relocation plan to enable the ongoing construction work and ensure their 24-hour operations remained intact. Vargas Associates also assisted the project with the selection of interior finishes that created an inspiring new space for the officers and command staff, while working within the confines of a tight project budget, supported with public funds. Throughout this 4-month timeframe, we worked with the police department, city architect, and construction manager to adjust the implementation plan as modifications were made to the renovation footprint and project approach. Directing the mover throughout each phase of the project, we created temporary swing spaces, which were used while areas of the space were under construction. Upon final occupancy, the offices were transformed to include new office furniture, new paint and flooring throughout, and a new lobby with improved functionality for both RPD and the public they serve.
