Salt Lake City in Utah, US, has unveiled the design for its $125m public safety headquarters.
The new building, which will house the city’s police and fire department headquarters, will feature an angular building design with a glass façade.
The building will be net-zero, meaning it will produce as much energy as it consumes with the help of solar panels, rooftop plants, radiant heating and daylight-sensitive lights.
The first floor of the building will house a police and fire museum, community rooms and a records room for public access.
The green building has also been designed to withstand severe earthquakes.
Construction is slated to begin on 1 June 2011 and the building is scheduled to open in May 2013.
