Tacoma Police Headquarters


The Tacoma Police Headquarters Building consists of a 74,000 square-foot, three-story essential facility for the City of Tacoma. Supplementing the architectural concept of an internal atrium space, PCS incorporated and exposed steel X-braces in a 50-foot tall open space, which gave the architect and owner flexibility in the perimeter office spaces. This proved to be a good choice as the national Patriot Act lead to programming changes within the building during construction.
