Atlanta Public Safety Annex: Atlanta, Georgia

The Atlanta Public Safety Annex is a $20 Million adaptive re-use renovation project that includes the renovation of the existing 105,000 SF warehouse, demolition of the 15,000 SF one-story building, and the addition of an 80,000 SF three-story office building. The site work contained a large underground detention system, a rainwater reclamation system, additional parking, and a pre-engineered building that was utilized by the police as an impound storage area.

Construction started at the beginning of the recession. Our team was able to counteract budget issues by working together and offering value engineering ideas and exploring areas that may have needed to be re-designed. We altered our schedule and changed our original sequencing so that innovative and fresh ideas could be explored and the Owner would receive the maximum benefit.

In the end, the team delivered the entire project, including change orders, almost $2 million under budget without sacrificing quality. This included almost $1 million in added scope. The project was completed 75 days ahead of schedule and achieved 36.8% minority participation. Furthermore, the safety record for this project was outstanding; there were no lost time and no recordable accidents in almost 140,000 man hours.

The project included many sustainable features, including the City of Atlanta’s first rainwater reclamation system. Also an unprecedented 99.8% of construction waste was recycled! The Atlanta Public Safety Annex is the City’s third LEED certified facility and the first to achieve LEED Gold certification.

Client Quote:

“The Hogan team went to great lengths to exceed not only the LEED requirements but the practical intent of LEED on this project. Hogan continued to maintain cost effective solutions as changes were needed throughout the project, as well as appropriate scheduling and performance assurance. Organization, cleanliness, and jobsite safety were maintained at all times, resulting in better quality construction. They tackled issues head on in an expedient manner and kept the design and construction management and owner’s representatives fully informed and participatory throughout the construction.”
