Louisville Metro Police Department – Edison Center
Louisville Metro Police Department recently moved into space within The Edison Center, in the Old Louisville neighborhood. The newly revitalized building was originally built in 1924, but has been vacant since the late 1990’s. Over the past several months, 300+ Louisville Metro employees, including Community Services and the Air Pollution Control District have re-located into the renovated facility. Kerr-Greulich Engineers, Inc. designed and engineered the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection. The exposed structure made it crucial to design with the overall aesthetics in mind.
Highlights of KGEI’s design include:
- Fire sprinkler throughout using a pipe sprinkler system.
- Water source heat pump system to accommodate LMPD fit-out in existing building; one new unit and two existing units to provide heating and cooling.
- Design of outside air from an existing dedicated outside air unit.
- Sound traps to limit noise from the water source heat pump units. Additionally, special duct routing modifications were necessary to limit noise transfer from the family meeting room to the open work space.
- LED lighting with are occupancy sensor lighting controls for the open office area.
- Linear pendant mounted LED’s over pre-wired office cubicles.
- Power and data system for office furniture.
- Data infrastructure via cable tray.
