City of North Ogden


North Ogden, Utah

27,420 sf

As the thriving City of North Ogden continues to grow, the City determined it was time to assess the police department’s needs to address citizen safety and maintain efficient and effective police operations. The current public safety building was built in the 1960s and has undergone many remodels to retrofit the space to function as a police department. The existing structure’s age, design, and size create many operational challenges.

Galloway was selected to conduct a needs assessment and feasibility study to determine a long-term solution for public safety services. After examining multiple sites and remodel options, the City decided that constructing a new public safety facility would meet its needs and be the most cost-effective alternative.

The City selected the design-build team of Galloway and Big D Construction to construct the one-story, 27,420 sf public safety building. Galloway provided architecture, interior design, landscape design, surveying, and civil engineering services, including site, grading, utility, and drainage design.

The public safety building site is in a residential neighborhood, providing our team with unique factors and challenges. Galloway worked with the contractor, owner, and adjacent property owners to coordinate retaining wall construction across the site. The site has a significant grade transition that required thorough civil coordination with the structural engineer to adjust footings to elevate the grade transition. Due to the site grade change and available connection points to the existing City system, Galloway designed two separate, underground detention systems.

The Galloway team coordinated with the sewer design team throughout the new sewer lateral design to confirm that it would be consistent with the proposed facility and construction schedule and to ensure that our connections worked with their design. We carefully coordinated the site design for future access to the site and adjacent parking areas.
