Innovation means buildings are there when they are most needed. Coffman provided a seismic retrofit scheme using shot-crete and fiber reinforced polymers over the existing concrete walls and added new concrete shear walls. This proposed solution allowed the structure to meet enhanced life-safety performance level under the design earthquake ground motion. Residents of Santa Barbara can feel more secure knowing their police station will preserve the personnel most needed in times of emergency.
