Olathe Fire Station No. 8
& Fire Training Academy
Olathe Fire Station 8 is a collaboration between Finkle + Williams and TCA Architects in Seattle. The design allows rapid access to the apparatus from all rooms within the building, and features fire poles and a unique double switch-back stair. The building occupies 1.5 acres of the 10 acre site with the balance of the site slated for a city park. The City of Olathe engaged Finkle + Williams to design a Fire Training Facility for the Olathe Fire Department, a 15-acre site and will include an administration building to house restrooms, indoor and outdoor classrooms.
Kansas City, Longmont, CO & St. Louis, MO
Finkle + Williams is honored to play a small part in the work that the Veterans Community Project is doing to help homeless veterans live in dignity and safety through trauma informed designed communities in both Kansas City and soon, nationwide. VCP’s new Kansas City Veteran Navigation Campus will expand their ability to provide walk-in services for targeted, comprehensive care. The first expansion community in Longmont, Colorado will soon provide 26 tiny homes and a 3,000 sf community center. The St. Louis campus will host an outreach center, a community center, and 50 tiny houses.
Lee's Summit, Missouri
A fast-growing Lee’s Summit church reached out to Finkle + Williams to design a 32,000 square foot addition. The new building will add a 1,200 seat auditorium, large fellowship atrium, outdoor gathering space, and classrooms for children ministry. A large glass atrium serves as the main entrance and connects the new auditorium to the original building. Both the front and back entrances to the building enter the atrium and are equally elegant so church members can approach from any parking space and have the same experience upon entering the building. This also brings all parking space closer to the building and optimizes the traffic flow around and through the site.
Midway USA is planning a 336,000 fully integrated distribution center near Columbia, Missouri. Along with the new center is a relocation of their office and customer service center.

The City then retained Finkle+Williams and our consultants to complete the design and oversee construction for the 63,000 SF project.
