The City of Chandler’s Public Safety Training Center was designed and constructed to serve as an important shared resource facility for the Chandler Police Department and Chandler Fire Department. This newly constructed 29,130 SF, two-story masonry building is the first phase of a two phase training center project, that includes: a 250-seat auditorium, high volume lobby space, various sized technology rich classrooms, fitness center, defense tactics room, firearms simulator room, locker-rooms, and break-spaces for staff and trainees.
The centrally located building provides a prominent and welcoming destination for police and fire visitors, and was designed to integrate a future indoor police firing range complex and fire multipurpose support facility, seamlessly into the training campus. This facility allows for effective shared use and joint-instruction opportunities, enhancing Chandler police and fire personnel’s ability to work together when responding to emergency situations.
The training center will reduce long-term training costs while allowing Chandler Police and Fire Departments to host world class training. Rider Levett Bucknall provided cost consulting services to McClaren, Wilson, & Lawrie, Inc for this project.
