Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Public Safety Building
The new 130,000-square-foot public safety headquarters building at DFW Airport will house the administrative and operational offices for the airport’s police, fire, and special services staff, as well as a detention center.
PGAL facilitated collaborative programming/planning sessions with representatives from all departments to determine space needs and optimize efficiency and functionality, while satisfying the airport’s overall objectives.
Strategic collaborative spaces will foster interdepartmental interaction and planning. The facility includes administrative offices, support personnel offices, conference rooms, huddle areas, training/seminar rooms, an IT/mechanical room, a detention facility, a crime investigation room, interrogation rooms, a SWAT deployment area, a sally port, an apparatus bay, and a fitness center with lockers and showers.
Located on the airport’s southwest side, the two-story building is projected to open in 2019.
