DUNN ASSOCIATES, INC Consulting Structural Engineers
Salt Lake Public Safety Building
This LEED Platinum, net-zero facility houses Salt Lake City’s police, fire, central dispatch, emergency operations, and a state-of the-art media communications center. As the center for first responders in an emergency, the building had to protect against both natural and man-made forces that could disrupt response time. A key aspect of this was the structural system which is not only blast resistant, but can also withstand a 7.5 magnitude earthquake.
