Towson University | Public Safety Building
This project involved the construction of a 20,270 GSF building to support the current and projected facility needs of the University’s Office of Public Safety. The new two-story building provided expansion space for facilities management departmental offices and additional parking facilities and access roads. The Public Safety Building is situated on an approximately 1.5-acre property where university tennis courts previously stood. Construction involved a variety of spaces including departmental offices, an emergency operations center, a communications dispatcher room, a camera viewing area, a records room, storage facilities, as well as a sally port and secure areas for the police and for detainees. The new building has a main entrance accessible to visitors with proximity to parking on the north side of the site. An additional secured entrance is adjacent to the sally port. Landscaping was provided between the parking and the adjacent neighborhood homes.
