Georgia Institute of Technology Campus Safety Facility
This new 31,042 square foot facility allowed the campus to replace obsolete police facilities, consolidate the units into one location, and modernize the police functions. The building houses all units and departments of the Georgia Tech Police Department, along with all of their storage needs. The project required a significant amount of secure outdoor structured parking for patrol vehicles, utility trailers, and specialty vehicles. While many of the program elements were typical to an office building, such as offices and conference rooms, there were several unique elements specific to the function of a Police Department. Some of these elements included an Emergency Operations Center, K9 facilities, locker rooms, a Forensic Lab, and a sally-port in the basement level for secure movement of persons in custody.
This project pursued a Georgia Peach Green Building Certification.
