On August 19th, DOWL partook in a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new 23,424 sf Public Safety Building in the town of Queen Creek caps off about 2 years of effort for the Tempe Office. This design-build project also included a new fire station, dedicated a few months ago, in addition to the Public Safety Building. The community was invited to attend and free festivities included the sheriff’s office providing free child ID’s, K9 demo, tours of the new building, photo booth, and a dunk tank manned by sheriff’s deputies. DOWL provided all civil design for this project, including site grading, drainage, and utilities, roadway improvements, left-turn lane improvements, and emergency signals. The project team was led by CORE Construction and Perlman Architects, one of Tempe’s main clients. We currently have 4 additional fire stations in various states of design and construction with the same team.
