The new Lincoln City Policy Station, which replaces an old ambulance building on the same site, had several design and construction challenges, including steep topography, limited access points, and the need for the previous building to remain operational during construction. The team worked closely with City Council and police staff to identify the goals for the project and key metrics for success. They also conducted research into the history and culture of Lincoln City, working with citizens to determine an “origin story” that would influence the representation of the new structure. The result is a hybrid project that includes cross-laminated timber, structural steel, and a tile roof and wall cladding made from pre-cast concrete. The building’s material choices meet the resiliency requirements of Lincoln City’s coastal environment as well as the security requirements that law enforcement facilities demand. Its proximity to a public park, community spaces, and use of local building materials help foster its connection to the public and identity as a welcoming civic building.
