DC Evidence Control Facility
Location: Washington, D.C.
Developer: The John Akridge Company
Architect: DVA Architects, LLC
Size: 30,000 SF
Services: Design Build, General Contractor
Project Description :
This highly specialized facility was designed to store short term and long
term evidence and house the Evidence Control personnel for the Metropolitan
Police Department. The facility contains high-speed 30 ft tall storage
shuttles, 80 ft long x 30 ft high moveable aisle shelves, secure drug and
valuable storage as well as refrigerated storage for DNA samples. The new
customized storage systems provided over 200,000 cf of storage, and all of
the evidence in the previous 70,000 sf storage facility was able to fit in the new
warehouse with room for expansion. This Design Build project also included the computer software system that was used to track each piece of evidence,
including its status and location within the warehouse. This computer automated
inventory tracking software was integrated with MPD’s existing
software systems. The project was required to be LEED Silver, but was
awarded LEED Gold by USGBC due to extra efforts and design considerations.
