Construction nearing completion on new sheriff's substation

Construction of a new county sheriff’s substation in Pine Valley is almost complete.

The $3.3 million facility will accommodate law enforcement partners from federal, state and local agencies; and will include a community room for public meetings, offices, detainee processing and holding cells, evidence processing and storage rooms, an armory and kennel.

The design of the facility will incorporate elements of crime prevention through environmental design including natural surveillance and natural access control.

The building's exterior materials will reflect the character of its surroundings and include a transparent but secure 6-foot high decorative fence with a main gate and vehicle gate.

The new substation will also have sustainable features such as photovoltaic panels on the roof, the use of low VOC paints, sealants, adhesives, recycled content materials and local materials.

It will more than triple the size of the existing facility and will accommodate five deputies.

The design-build team consists of Harper Construction Co. and Sillman Wright Architects, with additional contractors including Burkett & Wong Engineers, LSW Engineers and Carter Romanek Landscape Architects.

The sheriff's substation is slated to be completed by spring 2014.
