Key features of sustainable design that Cross Engineers prepared were:
Cross Engineers provided the original electrical design (1953) for this 11 story facility that houses County Administration, Sheriff Department, Court Rooms, Detention, and Telecommunication and Radio Centers. Cross Engineer’s design scope included lighting, lighting controls, power distribution, telecommunications, public address, fire alarm, and generator back-up. Cross Engineers has provided electrical design for major additions and remodels that include Courtroom and Law Library wings, Jail Additions, and upgrading the Primary Distribution system.
Pierce County City Building Main Jail HVAC System Replacement Project (under construction)
This Main Jail HVAC System Replacement project upgraded the existing mechanical systems to improve ventilation within 35,000 square foot of the Medical Wing, portions of the Jail, and Administrative areas, to meet current Mechanical Code requirements. All ceiling spaces in these areas had to be removed to allow new ductwork. Cross Engineers was responsible for field verification of the existing electrical conditions, and to provide design for new energy efficient detention grade lighting throughout with new energy saving lighting controls. Cross Engineers also provided design for re-connection of the existing power systems, along with adding a new 480V distribution system to handle new chiller, cooling towers, and associated pumps. Upgrade of this system is occurring while the Jail, Courtrooms, and administration are operational.
The existing facility was constructed in 1991. Cross Engineers as the electrical subconsultant is currently upgrading the lighting, security, UPS and generator to expand the facility to handle additional callS for the City of Sumner and Orting. This is a critical facility in operation 24/7/365. The facility will be fully operational and occupied during remodel of the building and upgrades to the existing systems.
