Lenexa Justice Center
Finkle + Williams teamed with Roth Sheppard Architects out of Denver, Colorado to go after the City of Lenexa’s new Justice Center which will be home to Lenexa’s Police Headquarters, Municipal Court, Community Room and Police Training facility. The project is comprised of a 95,000 SF 2-story building and a secondary 23,500 SF training building. The two buildings and associated public and secure parking areas and site features encompasses about half of a 36-acre City-owned property and sits into the slope of the site allowing the 2-story building to have two levels of at-grade access. The public facing side of the building is oriented to embrace the public corner and parking areas which enter at level 2, while the secure side of the building faces away from the public street and sits at the lower level to provide a secure parking area and entry. The design team worked extensively with each division of the Police Department to understand their operational flow and needs for the new building.

The Community Center includes computer labs for job training and resume building, office space for case workers, and flex space for community meetings or volunteer healthcare teams to provide services.
Project Outreach Center, SD
Sioux Falls, SD
Sioux Falls, South Dakota is the third expansion city. The village is located on ancestral lands of the Occeti Shakowin community and members of the Seven Fires Council and therefore has special significance to the Native American people. According to Native American lore, there is deep symbolism associated with the construction of a tipi—the original form of housing for many of the plains peoples. The first three poles of a tipi for an asterisk-like cross and represent a star. Living in a tipi is symbolic of living within a star. A representation of these first three poles of a tipi has been incorporated into the entrance to the community center. Circular motifs are also present throughout the campus. Cedar, deemed sacred to the local tribes, has been incorporated throughout the building as well as local stone on the veneer. The circle is symbolic of journeys; leaving and returning to a place as a different person. The symbolism aligns so well with the mission of VCP and with the journeys of many of the residents.
