The new Pasco Police Community Services Building triples the size of the current police station.
The $8 million project at 215 W. Sylvester St. involved the construction of about 38,000 square feet of space.
The building sits on 7.7 acres east of the City Hall parking lot, between Nixon and Sylvester streets. The opening has been delayed until late December or early 2017, pending inspection.
It has an industrial look with pre-cast concrete panels and Corten metal panels interspersed on the front and oversized concrete blocks making up both ends of the building.
The building has open ceilings, polished cement floors, LED lighting and zone heating. Wainscoting is placed on the walls four feet up from the floors.
The facility has two separate basements and a 3,100-square-foot second floor.
The bigger and better multipurpose space for the department will include room for administration, patrol, investigation, records, evidence room with separate secured room to store high-security weapons and explosives, a large garage where stolen and impounded vehicles can be stored, a large squad room and community meeting room that can seat about 120 people. There will be designated security camera parking spots to allow for “online purchase” exchanges to be done more securely.
The new building was designed to serve the community for many years and to grow with the city of Pasco.
Total Site Services of Richland is the general contractor. Kevin Stevens is the project manager, Scott Schurman is superintendent and Kyle Hintz is professional engineer.
Design work was completed by Terence L. Thornhill Architect in Kennewick.
