Awards: LEED Gold, AIA Middle TN Citation Design Award
As project architect, designer and Architect of Record, Wayne Johnson oversaw the revitalization of this run-down, vacant car dealership into a new police precinct. The specific functional requirements of the facility were addressed with special attention to the site, the building’s connection to the street and the ability to accommodate the needs of the local neighborhood. The design of this facility required careful planning and design, retaining portions of the existing structure while fitting the specific programmatic requirements within a set footprint. Additionally, the new precinct was intended to be a catalyst for future growth and help revitalize the surrounding community. The surrounding area has seen increased and improved amenities and an improvement in public safety. The project was completed on time and on budget.
Midtown Police Precinct
Awards: LEED Gold
The Midtown Hills Police Precinct for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) is a new 21,722 SF building located between the Gulch and the 12th South neighborhoods. Design elements for this project were influenced by these two distinct areas and incorporated to bring visual connection and relationship to the surrounding urban environment. The one story structure includes patrol, shift and detective offices, exercise and locker rooms for police personnel, and a Community Room that can host a variety of public meetings and events. An informal community amphitheater is located at the low end of the site. Along the east elevation of the site, a monumental stair element adjacent to the Community Room enhances the civic presence of the building.

Nashville Fire Station 30
Awards: LEED Silver

After completion of the new station the existing facility was demolished.
Nashville Fire Station 3
Size: 16,000 square feet
Awards: LEED Silver
Station #3* located in East Nashville, was a new facility on the same site as the previous station.

The new facility can accommodate fourteen personnel including two fire captains and two EMS personnel. Additionally, the facility featured a large kitchen, weight room, and sleeping quarters for the crew.
Nashville Fire Station 31
Awards: LEED Silver
Station #31* located in Madison had similar programmatic requirements to Station #3, including a newly constructed facility on the same site as the previous one. The size of the site was also limited, so a two-story solution was employed for this site as well. The 16,000 SF facility featuring 2 garage bays serves 14 occupants including crew, chiefs, and EMS personnel.
Upper Cumberland Regional Health Facility
Awards: LEED Platinum, AIA Middle Tennessee Merit Award
The Upper Cumberland Regional Health Facility, owned by the State of Tennessee, is a 55,000-square foot facility designed to compensate for the recent and projected growth of the regional health departmentservicing 14 counties. The space was designed with four designations: administrative offices, a conference center, a clinic, and general building services.
The first building in the State of Tennessee to receive the LEED Platinum certification, this project was a leader in sustainable building design. The facility was designed to provide a healthy indoor environment while minimizing the environmental impact of the building and lowering the operating costs. These goals and the functions of the building shaped the design, creating a design featuring a central spine. This central spine connected the administrative offices to the clinic, warehouse and conference centers. An integrated design approach was implemented for this project. Each discipline coordinated with each other to ensure that the building was designed as efficiently as possible. The collaborative team was what
lead to a successful, sustainable project.
