KCPD South Patrol Station

Kansas City, Missouri

Vireo was the Landscape Architect for the new KCPD/SOD South Patrol Station. This new facility is designed to meet LEED silver and features many sustainable site features. Among some of the most interesting aspects is the design of a green solution system that helps treat all stormwater run-off coming off the site. What is special about these green solutions is that they are designed to be integrated into the overall site and landscape design. Maintenance and safety concerns were among the most important design considerations and the design team met with City and KCPD staff several times to make sure the design met those concerns. In the end, Vireo designed a site to maximize beauty and sustainability while minimizing maintenance issues.
