Metro Nashville Police Headquarters and Family Safety Center

TMP, in association with Hastings Architecture Associates, designed the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department Headquarters (MNPD Headquarters) and Family Justice Center (FJC). Messer Construction was the Design-Build Contractor. This unique project consists of two buildings. The new 120,350 SF MNPD Headquarters houses the offices for the Chief of Police, 5 Deputy Chiefs, and their departments and staff. The facility also contains a data center, parking garage, and a vehicle information technology installation garage. The new 67,000 SF Family Justice Center houses the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County’s Office of Family Safety, the Nashville Children’s Alliance, MNPD Domestic Violence counselors, TN Department of Children’s Services, District Attorneys, and other non-profit agencies. The project is currently under construction with an estimated completion in October 2018.

Key aspects of the design include:

  • Pursuing LEED Silver Certification
  • FJC central “play prism” wrapped by a monumental staircase
  • Internal courtyard for use by FJC staff and clients
  • 6,550 SF data center for MNPD servers and Metro ITS backup
  • Shared cafeteria connector between the buildings
