Tacoma Police Department
Tacoma Police Department Headquarters
From 2001-2003, while at Architects Rasmussen Triebelhorn, Jennifer acted as Project Architect on the Tacoma Police Headquarters new 75,000 square foot building, located near 38th Street on Pine Street in Tacoma, WA. Throughout the two-year design process, Jennifer conducted weekly project team meetings, in addition to leading the architectural staff in drawing set production. The design was collaborative in part with Thomas Cook Fitzgerald Architects. Jennifer worked closely with the clients and team members to solidify a design that achieved a LEED Silver rating, incorporating features such as a raised floor air system. The building brings together the Tacoma Police personnel that had been located in satellite portable offices all over the city. In addition to evidence storage, forensics, homeland security offices, temporary prisoner and processing areas, and permanent offices for all personnel, the building houses a large community space that can serve in emergency response situations. Jennifer was also on the selection panel for the public art that was incorporated into the facility. PCS Structural Solutions, Hultz|BHU, and AHBL were all members of the project team.
