Public Safety Building
Public Works managed the construction of San Francisco's new police headquarters and public safety campus, creating a state-of-the-art facility that allows public responders to better manage major events and critical incidents with public safety services. The project was funded through the voter-approved Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response bond program in 2010.
The LEED Gold-certified police headquarters, located in Mission Bay, replaced the more than 50-year-old location at the Hall of Justice (850 Bryant Street) with a seismically-resilient building that accomodates the needs of a modern police force.
Public Works led the overall project and construction management and collaborated with lead architects HOK+Mark Cavagnero Associates on the campus; interior design of the police headquarters, Southern District Police Station and Fire Station No. 4; and rehabilitation of the historic Fire Station No. 30 for community use. Pankow Builders served as the construction manager and general contractor. The San Francisco Arts Commission oversaw two major public art installations that bring beauty, symbolism and remembrance to the campus. These include: Spiral of Gratitude, a memorial designed by New York-based artist, Shimon Attie and First Responder Plaza, designed by San Francisco-based artist Paul Kos.
The campus broke ground in late 2011 and officially opened in April 2015. It is part of San Francisco's 10-year Capital Plan, representing the City's commitment to building a stronger future.
In June 2014, San Francisco voters passed a new ESER bond to continue the important work of seismic upgrades to neighborhood fire houses and district police stations; repairs and upgrades to the City's emergency firefighting water system; and the relocation of the motorcycle police, crime lab and medical examiner.
