The 6,000-sq-ft security upgrade project installed bullet-resistant glazing, bullet-resistant panels, revolving doors and other upgrades to the Dallas Police Dept. headquarters. The facility remained fully operational and open to the public throughout the project. The team created a phasing plan that included temporary protection for the construction areas.
Due to safety concerns about cutting fiberglass ballistic material for the project, the team decided to cut the material off site to avoid any potential harm to the public or employees. Crews completed nearly 14,000 man-hours with no lost-time incidents or recordables.
