HOK-Designed Fairfax County Public Safety Headquarters Breaks Ground

Fairfax County Public Safety“Fairfax County officials broke ground for a 274,000-square-foot public safety headquarters that will give police and fire operations a technologically modern and energy-efficient base in which to collaborate and grow.”

The $142 million facility will be eight stories tall and have an 850-space, five-level parking garage.

“The building will qualify for a Silver rating under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards of the U.S. Green Building Council.”

“In addition to having energy-efficient water fixture, permeable pavements, ‘green’ roofs and rainwater harvesting, the building will be the county’s first to employ light-emitting-diode (LED) lighting throughout.”

“The new headquarters will have training and multipurpose rooms, plus rooms where police and fire officials can test, interview and recruit personnel.”
