Kirkland Public Safety Building
DEA civil engineers and surveyors supported the work of Project Architect Miller Hull Partnership as they transformed an aging big-box store into the LEED Silver-rated Kirkland Public Safety Building. Sustainable additions included a new public plaza area that features a rain garden and two above-grade cisterns that collect stormwater runoff from the building for irrigation. DEA engineers modified the parking lot grading and stormwater drainage design, redesigned the existing parking lot layout to provide for secure parking for police and staff, and designed two stormwater treatment vaults and a rain garden.
