Haynes / Lacewell Police and Fire Training Facility

Wilmington, NC

New indoor shooting range, police sub-station, and fire department training space

Wilmington Police Department

Clark Nexsen worked with the City of Wilmington to design a police training space (approximately 22,000 square feet) that includes a 10-lane, 100-yard indoor firearms range with a planned space for a future 50-yard range, classroom space, simulators, shooting areas, lead recovery system, storage space, police office space, and restrooms. There is also a K-9 training area and the facility includes a Use-of-Force Simulator and a Driving Simulator. The WPD will base future Citizen’s Police Academies at the facility giving city residents a chance to use the simulators and go through some of the experiences officers do.

Wilmington Fire Department

Clark Nexsen worked with the City of Wilmington to design an 8,000 square foot fire department space to house the fire department’s training and logistics divisions. The facility includes space for offices, classrooms, a driving simulator, incident command simulator, as well as logistics storage and physical fitness training /shower facilities.

The project includes space for the six-member Training & Logistics Division, which had previously been using offices that were designed to be closets or storage rooms at the Department’s Market Street Headquarters. A WFD driving simulator was relocated to the new facility. Additional spaces include a physical training room (mat room), exterior perimeter fencing, and potential relocation of the fire department training vehicle parking area within the fenced perimeter.
