LAPD Police Administration Building – Los Angeles, CA

Project Overview

The new police headquarters facility was built to replace an outdated facility that was nearly 60 years old. Precast concrete was used in the construction of the facility for a number of reasons, most notably for its civic presence, sustainability goals, cost savings, and long-term durability. The 10-story building stands 500,000 square feet and is made up of 1,025 architectural precast facade panels.

The use of precast concrete allowed the design team to use color and character that could be harmonious with the historic city buildings in the area, which helped to establish the police headquarters building as an important part of the historical and civic context of the site. Precast also allowed the project to meet overall sustainability goals by reducing heat gain, particularly on the west side of the building where the heat gain is the most severe. The long-term durability and low maintenance requirements of precast also allowed the project to be economically sustainable.
