Previous Review


Dear Ms. Parikh:

During its meeting of 18 March, the Commission reviewed the final plans for the perimeter security barriers, guard booths and landscape alterations for the Eccles and Martin buildings. The members approved the plans for both buildings with the exception of the design of the small guard booths to be located on the north side of the Martin building. It was felt that the materials used to sheath these booths should not be the same as the existing garage entry pavilion and that perhaps the design should be more complementary to the materials of the Martin building.

The Commission has in the recent past reviewed several guard booth designs that may be useful to study in developing an alternate design. The members asked that you and the design team work with our staff as a new design is developed. The alternative design can be submitted to the staff for the Commission's delegated final approval. Please let us know if you have any questions.
