The Polk County Public Safety Complex, designed by Furr & Wegman Architects, is located on 25 acres of a previously undeveloped site in Jan Phyl Village, Florida. The multiphase project includes four new government buildings, associated parking, roadways and major utility infrastructure construction. Located in the center of the County, the Public Safety Complex provides for a reduction in emergency response times while bringing government functions closer to the public.
Civil engineering construction plans and specifications were prepared for the design of site demolition, erosion control, grading, drainage, utilities (water, fire and sanitary sewer), dimensioning and construction details. A new sanitary sewer lift station was designed to accommodate future expansions in the surrounding area.
Site security measures were incorporated into the design. These features included controlled access points into the site and berms surrounding the buildings to prevent unauthorized vehicular access to the secure facilities.
SLAM Civil Engineers coordinated closely on the design with architects, engineers and contractors to produce this award-winning LEED Certified Silver project.
