Kirkland Justice Center

From Big-Box Store to One-Stop Shop for Justice

In 2011, the City of Kirkland, Wash., annexed several neighborhoods and saw its population surge. The police department expanded in personnel, but not in space, and soon felt squeezed in its 15,000-sq-ft area of City Hall. When a former wholesale warehouse became available, the city purchased the building with tax funds.

With the help of a collaborative design team, the warehouse was renovated into the Kirkland Justice Center. Housing the city’s police department and municipal court, the 102,000-sq-ft essential facility includes a booking center, a 55-bed correctional facility for misdemeanants, forensics laboratories, evidence lockers, vehicle-storage and maintenance areas, a 10-bay firing range, a 900-sq-ft data center, a weight room, three courtrooms, and a multipurpose room.

For its mechanical, plumbing, and fire-protection work on the project, Bellevue, Wash.-based mechanical and electrical engineering firm Wood Harbinger is the recipient of HPAC Engineering’s Design Award for 2015.
