Sheboygan Police Department: The Power of Light
This 40,000 square foot, $6.7 million facility showcases the power of creative illumination.
Harwood Engineering worked collaboratively with the City’s selected Architect to achieve the desired outcome. Through schematic design, design development and construction document development involvement, Harwood’s lighting designers delivered the most signature element; the blue glow that emanates from the structure—a symbol for law and order in the community.
The station’s primary circulation spine design not only offers needed shared common space, but also allows windows to allow daylight to penetrate throughout the structure. This reduces electrical loads and provides various ambient lighting.
The interior corridors and court room showcase insulated channel glass again allowing for maximum light. The areas also utilize hundreds of recessed canned lighting and various spotlights, along with ceiling up lighting to enliven the space at dusk and throughout the nighttime hours.
