SAN FRANCISCO PUBLIC SAFETY BUILDING
The new $164 million Public Safety Building will relocate both the San Francisco Police Department Command Center Headquarters and the Southern District Police Station, as well as to provide a new Fire Station for the Mission Bay Community. The Public Safety Building will provide operational resiliency, enabling police leadership to promptly and properly coordinate public safety services in the event of a major natural disaster. The work also includes the historic rehabilitation of Fire Station #30 which will provide a community meeting room and house the Arson Task Force.
The project is located at Block 8 in the Mission Bay South Redevelopment Area – 3rd and Mission Rock Streets.
The project delivery method incorporates an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach, placing the Architect and Engineering consultants in a collaborative relationship with Pankow. Construction started in December 2011 and is estimated to be completed in summer of 2014. The project is designed to meet LEED Gold level certification.
The Public Safety Building is funded by the Earthquake Safety and Emergency Bond (ESER) which was passed by voters in June 2010. The 290,000 square foot building will provide functional resiliency for up to several days after a major disaster. In addition to the construction of the Public Safety Building, the bond will fund the upgrade to the City’s Auxiliary Water Supply System (AWSS), a high pressure fire-fighting system, as well as repair neighborhood fire stations, thus ensuring the structural integrity of the City’s public safety facilities.
