Police Academy

The City and County of Honolulu Police Department needed more officers but that required a larger facility quickly for trainees. Five 14' x 60' modules were used in the design of the academy. The exterior design follows a typical community college campus.

The building had to withstand heavy contact, so it was designed for increased floor and wall loads. In addition to academic studies, the facility is used for martial arts, arrest technique training and canine training. The framing was insulated to block noise for an adequate classroom environment in the air-trafficked area.

The durable pre-engineered metal roof requires less maintenance than shingles or EPDM finishes. The facility is an area that is hotter than normal for Honolulu; to keep heat out and cool air in, wall framing and insulation was increased.

Caught off-guard with the sudden need for a larger police force, the County had not budgeted for the facility. Costly concrete slabs and re-bar are not necessary in modular construction. The foundation is blocks with plates that are welded to the chassis and I-beams. This meets requirements for a permanent structure. The County stayed in budget without reducing the quality of the building.
