Enhancing Public Safety & Revitalizing the Streetscape

  • Completion Date 2021
  • Budget $45M
  • Scale 75,000 SF

In 2016, Beaverton residents approved a bond measure to construct a new police and emergency management building. The new building, located at the corner of SW Hall Boulevard and SW Allen Boulevard, includes emergency management services, training facilities, offices, booking facilities, and evidence storage. This project featured an ambitious sustainability effort, including the establishment of a partnership between the City of Beaverton and Portland General Electric (PGE), which offered the opportunity to participate in a new Microgrid Pilot Project. The Microgrid Pilot Project enables the City and PGE to share a robust backup system that includes a generator, battery energy storage system, and a 330-kW photovoltaic (PV) system to collect and generate energy. The backup system, paired with a building that exceeds critical-facility standards, ensure that the City’s emergency response functions are resilient in the event of natural and other disasters.
With an inviting community plaza featuring interactive art sculptures, the project also serves to help implement the City’s revitalization efforts for the Allen Boulevard corridor.
