D.C. Public Safety Campus Feasibility Study
The major public safety agencies serving the District of Columbia are currently housed in aged, antiquated, and inefficient structures whose useful life has long since passed. As of mid-1999, capital requests exceeding $106 million had been made by police, fire and emergency medical services, medical examiner and unified communications agencies to construct separate buildings to house their central administrative functions.
CGL conducted a six-week study to evaluate the need for improved and/or additional space for the agencies by assessing factors that influence space, location, and the benefits or liabilities of co-locating some or all agencies at a single location. The intent of the study was to determine the feasibility of developing a consolidated world class public safety center that could be visited and utilized by other government public safety entities as well as the District public.
