Dibble completed the site civil elements for the design of a new Public Safety Facility on 3.5 acres on the Estrella Mountain Community College Campus. The facility serves the City of Avondale Fire and Police Departments, Southwest Ambulance, and EMCC security. Civil improvements included on-site horizontal and vertical design, extension of approximately 1,500 linear feet of on-site sewer, and grading and drainage analysis. The facility provides a full service police substation, two EMCC classrooms, appropriate space to support EMCC campus security functions, and shell space for a future fire station that includes living space for on-duty fire crews, enclosed bays/garages for fire apparatus and space to house an ambulance and crew. The project is a joint effort between the City of Avondale and Estrella Mountain Community College.

  • LOCATION » El Mirage, AZ
  • OWNER » City of El Mirage
  • ARCHITECT » Arrington Watkins Architects
  • COST » $5M
Dibble provided civil engineering design and construction administration services for the new 22,000 square foot police precinct. Special consideration was given early in the project design when considering the layout of the site. Since this is an active Police Station located within a community park, consideration was given to how the police will exit the facility in emergency situations while maintaining the safety of those within the park. In order to accomplish this, a police only access drive was designed to provide access to El Mirage Road without having to drive through the public parking lot and access road. Future building expansion was incorporated into the site layout and grading design. To maximize the available funds for the project, Dibble's design involved a balanced site to eliminate import or export of material.
