Emergency Operations Center

Dorchester County   |   Summerville, South Carolina 

This project was for the design and construction of a new emergency operations center, and also included a spatial needs assessment. The ever-increasing emergency needs and fast-paced growth of Dorchester County demanded the need of a new, state-of-the-art Emergency Operations and 9-1-1 Communications Center capable of safe and sustained operations
for providing effective direction and control in the management of emergencies. The facility will support improved communications and coordination assuring continuity of government/operations to provide citizens with basic needs and protecting lives and property. The new facility is designed to meet seismic requirements, to endure the wind load of a Category 4-5 hurricane, to withstand a terrorist attack by bombing, and built energy-efficient with an innovative design of wall and roof
systems. .

The project was featured in a segment on ABC News 4. Check is out here!
