Kitchell has a thorough understanding of the obstacles our public safety clients face when modernizing, renovating or replacing facilities. We have worked closely with many architects and planners in developing long-range master plans, modernization implementation and new construction building programs and facilities condition assessments. Our extensive list of public safety facility projects demonstrates our commitment to the public.

We understand the issues that are common to most public safety projects related to the functionality of the facility and the special nature of public safety facilities design. Using our extensive expertise and experience, we continue to deliver exceptional public safety facilities.
