Salt Lake City Public Safety Building

475 S 300 E, Salt Lake City, UT 84111, USA
About Salt Lake City Public Safety Building

Salt Lake Public Safety Complex houses the city’s police, fire, and emergency operation departments, replacing the 50-year-old public safety headquarters nearby. For the first time, city dispatch for police and fire are combined, providing emergency services to residents more efficiently than ever before. The six-story facility has a two-story underground parking structure with 460 stalls. Additional features include multi-use spaces for public gatherings, a police and fire museum, and an outdoor plaza for large public festivals and events.

The building is designed to be completely operational after an earthquake up to a magnitude 7.5 from seismic dampers. The new LEED Platinum Public Safety Complex is also designed to recover energy to create a "net-zero" energy balance with energy-efficient design, sophisticated monitors, solar panels, and a large solar array field west of the city. It also includes a solar canopy at the entrance to the facility.

The skills and craftsmanship of SME Steel are prominently displayed throughout this project.
