Public Safety Building


Project Description

The Public Safety building is a component of the Bonair Siding redevelopment area. The new building will consolidate all public safety functions under one roof in a facility that is specifically designed to accommodate the essential services functions of a Public Safety facility. Programs include: Office and administrative spaces, Departmental Operations Center, officer briefing rooms, booking and evidence storage facilities, locker rooms, equipment shop and other public safety related functions. As an essential services facility, the building will incorporate Stanford Class 1 criteria for seismic performance, including survivability of non-structural components.

The architecture of the Public Safety building adheres to the Main Campus Design guidelines. The base of the primary wing will be a buff colored concrete with charcoal/bronze metal siding and aluminum window systems that complement the surrounding context. The copper-red hipped standing seam metal roof sets the tone for future development envisioned along Bonair Siding Road. A central plaza anchors the building entrance and serves as a gathering and communal hub for the neighborhood. The service yard security fencing and metal siding on the auxiliary structures will quietly buffer the public safety equipment and vehicles.

Landscape treatment will enhance the streetscape along Bonair Siding Road and Pampas Lane, and a small courtyard will serve as a staff assembly area. The north edge of the building will be screened with buffer planting along Pampas Lane.
