RaganSmith prepared initial schematic plans for a new Police Headquarters for the City of Brentwood, TN. Our design consultants worked to prepare the initial site layout, preliminary grading and utility plans, hardscape concepts, and schematic plans and design. Our approach leveraged the site’s topography to play off the architectural lines of the building by placing hardscape and landscape features strategically. There was a deliberate intent to mirror and accentuate the “lines” to the ground plane with berms, plant locations and species, and hardscape materials. All elements and features worked together to add depth and perspective to the landscape.
RaganSmith collaborated with The Architect Workshop, their design consultants, and the City of Brentwood’s Police Chief and City Manager to develop the initial plans. Through several meetings we were able to understand what key items needed to be incorporated into the campus and used the city official’s feedback to collaborate on a successful design based on project priorities and goals. By designing the site to accommodate amenities and other items the city was considering, we were able to take an agile approach to planning as elements were added or removed from the scope.
