In 2004, the City of Winters, a Rural Community in Northern California, had the vision and foresight to seek Redevelopment Bonds for a new Police and Fire Facility. The proposed project would not only provide much needed working facilities for the Police and Fire Departments, but also serve as a catalyst for new businesses to come to City of Winters.

A Needs Assessment projected a 45,000 square foot facility for a 25-year build-out for the facility, which would house both Departments. The new facility replaces the existing Winters Fire Station 26, and the existing Police Department, located adjacent to City Hall, in the original Fire Station 26 location. Priorities for the new Facility included Functionality, Energy Efficiency, Low Maintenance, and Aesthetics. The Facility will serve as the City's Emergency Operations Center and Training Center, and historically is used for Community Events.

Set amongst residences and fronting a State Highway, with close proximity to town, the new City of Winters Police-Fire Facility shares the site with a City Well Building, a City Lift Station, and a new 140-foot high Communications Tower.

The new Police-Fire Facility is two-stories, with a gross building area of +/-34,563 square feet, and consists of two one-story Pre-Engineered Metal Building Systems sandwiching a two-story Wood-Frame Structure. The Facility includes complete Fire facilities with a four-bay Apparatus Room, eleven Dorms, Dayroom and Kitchen, Administrative Offices, and a Firepole; Police facilities with Records, Property & Evidence, Booking, Holding Cells, Sallyport, Locker Rooms, and Administrative Offices; and Commons areas including Public Lobby, Training Room/EOC, and Exercise Room. The Facility is designed to accommodate community events in the Apparatus Room, which has a hydronically heated floor, and a low-velocity overhead fan for air distribution, and includes a separate Community Kitchen for annual events.

The Site includes Training Grounds, an underground Drafting Pit, and Secured Covered Parking for Patrol Cars. A third separate Pre-Engineered Metal Building serves as an Out Building, +/-5,758 square feet, and houses the City's collection of antique Fire Apparatus, provides a bay for vehicle maintenance of the Fire Engines, and also provides large item storage for the Police Department.

The two-story element breaks up the horizontal massing of the surrounding one-story elements, by providing an animated and varied vertical massing scheme, with dominant roofline profiles. The wall planes of the one-story elements are broken up by attached Roof Awnings, over walkways and carports, and the Apparatus Doors for the Fire Engines.

Exterior materials have been selected for appearance and aesthetics, durability, and long-term maintenance.

The one-story Metal Building elements have a concrete masonry wainscot with pre-finished vertical, metal siding above; the metal siding is Red, at the Fire Department, and Blue, at the Police Department. The two-story element has a clay masonry wainscot, with accent striping to provide scale to the building, and with pre-finished vertical, metal siding above. The historic Winters Bell and Flagpoles are incorporated into the design.
