Vanir Awarded 2022 CMAA Northern California Project Achievement Award

Vanir has won a CMAA Northern California Chapter Project Achievement Award for its work on the City and County of San Francisco’s new Traffic Company and Forensic Services Division (TCFSD) Facility!

As part of San Francisco’s 2014 Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response Bond, the City constructed its new state-of-the-art TCFSD facility to house the San Francisco Police Department’s Forensic Services Division and the City’s Traffic Company (motorcycle police). The project involved the demolition of four structures at the current site and construction of a new three-story, 100,000-square-foot building, as well as site and street improvements associated with the new development.

Vanir was proud to provide construction management support services for the facility, which is comprised of:

  • Offices, conference rooms, locker rooms and a fitness room
  • Parking structure for the Traffic Company
  • Crime scene investigation
  • Computer forensics
  • Identification bureau
  • Photo lab
  • Forensic artist
  • Body-worn camera exam laboratory
  • Crime lab (analyzes forensic DNA)
  • Firearms
  • Testing labs (gunshot residue, controlled substances, breath/blood alcohol and trace evidence/fire debris)

The building was designed to exceed City and County energy efficiency and sustainability standards and is currently awaiting LEED Gold certification. It was designed to remain operational in the event of future sea-level rise or a major disaster.

Congratulations to the City and County of San Francisco, the San Francisco Police Department, our Vanir team members and everyone else involved with this award-winning facility!
