The Raleigh County Commission selected Silling Architects to design a new headquarters for the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Department located in Beckley, West Virginia. The Sheriff’s Department has outgrown their headquarters which was a former WV State Police detachment facility. Silling Architects worked closely with representatives from the County and Sheriff’s Department to perform programming services and develop a graphic test-fit in order to demonstrate how the program could fit in a new building located on the purchased property.

Highlighted spaces to aid in officer mental and physical health are a large patrol room with a glass façade providing natural light for the officers’ workstations and a fitness room with a glass façade with views to an outdoor space accessible by officers and staff.
