Public Safety Building and Emergency Operations Center
The new Emergency Operations Center/Public Safety Building will be equipped with state-of-the-art disaster management and public safety technology. Sheriff’s Administration, Fiscal, Personnel, and Emergency Services will also be located in this building. The two-story, 38,000-square foot building is designed to operate independently during an emergency if city utilities become unavailable. On March 26, 2018, Contra Costa County selected the design-build team of Hensel Phelps and Dreyfuss + Blackford Architecture to complete this project. The new building is scheduled for completion in March 2020.

September saw our first bit of precipitation. Our team set a very active pace with removal of 95% of our spoils. Back fill and connection of the sanitary sewer holding tank and POC to the lateral was completed. New holding tanks; domestic water, fire water, sanitary sewer and diesel fuel are in place. PG&E provided four inspections and informed us we were live on September 27 only to find we need to wait for the first week of October for a meter lock by another PG&E group. We still await ATT and Comcast fiber pulls. Drywall framing, taping and topping on the second floor, public lobby and hallway continues. Painting on both floors, accent colors, prime and second coat application continues. All exterior glazing is 98% complete. Storefront systems remain outstanding. Plaster finishes have been prepared to receive the plaster in October. EOC should be fully watertight by the end of October. Branch wire and low voltage wire is being pulled throughout the building. T-bar ceiling, drop-in fixtures, low voltage units and equipment have been installed in the ceiling tile. Soffit work on the first and second floor continue. This team is exemplary in their safety program and have no-lost time incidents to date. Safe place to work makes a great place to work.
