Arizona State University, Police Department
This 42,000 square foot facility serves as a centralized dispatch center for all of Arizona State University’s existing and future campuses. It includes an emergency operations center, suspect holding facilities, evidence processing storage facilities, and on-site secure parking. The building accommodates 100 officers and approximately 90 support staff.
The project responds to the environment on a larger scale through sustainable building design, and it has achieved LEED® Gold certification. The exterior walls consist of 15-inch-thick, tilt-up structural concrete panels with internal insulation cores. A large skylight over the central open office work area introduces daylight into the surrounding interior office spaces at the second and third levels. A suspended shade trellis extends from the entrance above an intimately scaled landscape courtyard, creating an inviting public square.
