New Police Headquarters – LEED Gold
IMEG provided structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design for the Los Angeles Police Department’s new 11-story, 500,000-sf headquarters and underground parking structure. The LEED Gold facility houses 2,100 LAPD operations personnel on a 24/7 schedule and includes a helipad, hearing rooms, locker facilities, auditorium, cafeteria, and retail space.
The building is designed as a high-rise with smoke evacuation system, stair pressurization system, full fire alarm, and sprinkler system. A chilled water system (with three chillers) is located in the base plant room and is connected to three large air handling units (one base and two on roof). The structure uses a multi-level reinforced concrete underground parking facility with structural steel superstructure.
