Kodiak Police Station and Jail

This project included a 28,030 SF, state-of-the-art Police Station and Jail in Kodiak, Alaska. Work included excavation and backfill for new building and site work. The new building’s concrete foundation was constructed on over 225 steel pilings with structural steel braced frames. The exterior included metal panels and masonry veneer, with insulated built-up asphalt roofing assembly. The enclosed interior spaces included a public lobby, police administrative areas, emergency operations center, evidence areas, locker rooms, vehicle bays, and support spaces. Due to the type of facility, the security systems within the building included intrusion detection, panel alarm, video surveillance, access control, audio threshold alarm, visitor communication, and audio/video recording systems for interview rooms. Since this project was replacing the current police station and jail, it was extremely important to ensure the coordination with the existing jail and transfer of security and inmates. This building is LEED Certified.
