Lafayette Parish Public Safety
Communications Center

The new Public Safety Communications Center was designed to showcase the strength and stability of the infrastructure surrounding local crisis response. The design was laid out locating the most important structures at the center of the building surrounded by a protective ring of supporting spaces. Upon entering the structure, visitors are introduced to a large entry enclosed in glass and protected by a concrete wall, that denotes strength and resilience. ACSW was tasked with creating a building that emanated prominence while maintaining the resilience of a structure that will serve functionally as the epicenter of parish-wide crisis management.
