The University of Florida Police Department (UFPD) needed a central location to house all of their functions under one roof. The UFPD is housed in five disparate locations across campus, including their primary functions in a historic building constructed in 1928 as a radio station. The goal of the project is to accommodate all of UFPD’s current and future operational needs, as well as increasing public accessibility and visibility on the existing site.
“This building represents the beginning of a new era for our department and the University of Florida.”Assistant Vice President of UF Public and Environmental Safety, Chief Linda Stump-Kurnick
“In addition to creating a highly organized and functional workspace, sustainability takes center stage. With reduced infiltration, solar shading, and compact footprint, the Public Safety Building is designed and built as a high-performance building.”Ekta P. Desai, AIA, Partner / Design Lead
