Our Work

Blue Springs Municipal Courthouse + Police Station Complex

Downtown Blue Springs, Missouri

As part of a multi-disciplinary team, Confluence was selected to provide landscape architecture and site planning services associated with the expansion and remodeling of an existing public safety building. The approximately 38,000 square foot expansion will provide space for the police department, municipal court, dispatch and animal control as well as additional parking for both staff and the public.

A new entry plaza with seating and sculpture visually and physically connects the complex to a new parking lot across the street while also providing an event space for the annual Fallen Officer Memorial Service. The design incorporates sustainable design practices including rain gardens to capture and treat storm water runoff entering the site from the adjacent streets.

The expansion project is estimated at $17 million, and was designed to meet LEED Certification requirements.
