State of Arizona Capital Dome Replacement

MIAA is honored to have completed the important replacement of the State of Arizona Capitol dome roof with S D Crane Builders. The historic building was built in 1901 and is now the Capitol Museum, the center of the capital complex. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. The new roof is natural copper, topped by the sculpture winged victory. See video below from State of Arizona:

Public Safety Training Center

The project establishes a new consolidated campus for Fire Science, Paramedic/EMT, and Police training on the Southwestern Community College Otay Mesa Campus. A new apparatus building houses fire engines, brush trucks, ambulances, and police SUVs and directly connects to a new maneuvering yard and fire training tower. An adjacent training facility will house testing facilities, lockers and storage and expand onto the site to provide indoor and outdoor training grounds. The concrete spray wall and training grounds will collect spray water to an underground tank for re-use to minimize water usage.

The new training facility includes:

  • Classrooms and offices
  • Lockers and showers
  • 5 story fire training tower with rappelling anchors
  • Residential prop building
  • Pitched roof prop
  • Flat roof prop
  • Supply storage
  • Fitness center
  • Covered outdoor eating/meeting
  • Defensive tactics room
  • Firearms training simulator room
