The new Northglenn Justice Center is now in the design phase of the process, and it’s looking awfully good.
Since Hoefer Wysocki Architecture LLC was contracted to create the design this February, they have been hard at work designing a building that will meet the needs of the Police Department, Municipal Court and the residents of Northglenn into the future.
Because the building will overlook Interstate 25 and be highly visible, we are creating a landmark – one residents and travelers will identify as being with the city of Northglenn. The building will be two stories, with the Municipal Court and police functions requiring public access on the main floor, and police functions not requiring public access on the bottom level.
The new center will be on a six-acre site owned by the city in the area of 112th Avenue and Community Center Drive, near the water towers.
A new center has been needed for some time, as the current space simply became too small and the existing infrastructure is unable to accommodate modern police standards.
A 2014 assessment identified spatial and functional needs and the plan for a new building started to move forward.
The cost of the building is $18M; additional ancillary costs put the total in the $21-$23M range. Completion will be in the fall of 2018.
A public open house and tours will be held after completion so that everyone can see the new Justice Center.
Construction crews focus on the outside of the Northglenn Justice Center while the weather is still relatively warm and dry. That way, when winter sets in, they can move inside and continue work.
With winter set to pounce on the Front Range at any time, the contractor for the Northglenn Justice Center is focused on finishing the exterior before the cold weather settles in. On the inside, the priority is the masonry.
The contractor has begun limited backfilling around the building and expects to complete the north foundation wall shortly. Masonry work has begun on the interior and will be a focus of the contractor coming up. The contractor's main goal is to complete the exterior of the building, protecting the interior from winter conditions.
The contractor will begin working on grading the detention pond and channels. Backfilling of the foundation wall is ongoing. Domestic water and water meter box installs are underway this week. Interior masonry priority walls are underway.
The contractor will be completing structural steel this week. The first concrete pour on the deck has been completed with the second pour (East Main Deck and Rotunda) scheduled for Friday. Interior masonry priority walls are underway and will continue for some time. Backfilling of the foundation began this week and will continue for two to three weeks.
The contractor is setting the structural steel for the building. When this is completed crews will begin placing concrete for the upper floors.
June 29: Lower Level Floors and Walls Taking Shape
The concrete foundation walls and grade breams have been formed. The first of three concrete slabs that will form the floor of the building has been poured. Utility, sanitary and sewer work continues.
Concrete placement for the east and west grade beams is complete. Concrete is placed for the east and center foundation walls, and work continues on forming the remaining walls and grade beam. The construction manager has begun installing the under-slab plumbing and electrical. Upcoming work includes: continuing construction of the walls, the grade beam, and plumbing and electrical. The first of three slab pours is scheduled tentatively for 6/23.
The site has been graded to allow work on the foundation to begin. They have installed 129 watertight retaining structures and will be forming and reinforcing walls in the next few weeks. Utility work on the sanitary line at Acoma Street is underway and should be completed in three weeks.
