Lake Township Public Safety Building
Multi-functional, sustainable design
This 22,000 square foot Police and Fire Station facility was designed to meet the public safety needs of the Lake and Baroda Township communities for 50 years, consolidating the fire and police departments of both townships, and has expansion capacities built-in for that time. The design features sustainable elements including a geothermal heating/cooling system. The new building was constructed across the street from the former Lake Township Fire Station, which is now used as a Medic 1 ambulance center. The former Baroda Township Public Fire and Police Station was replaced by this facility. The Fire half of the building includes parking bays for 8 trucks, as well as an exercise room, day room, chief’s office and two other offices, laundry and storage. The Police side of the building includes 4 parking bays, evidence storage, an armory, and interview room. One general conference room is available for all staff.
