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.

February closed out with the start of pre-cast panels installation. Remaining deferred submittals continue to be a focus of the Hensel Phelps Design team with their completion and sign-off soon. Bulletin 6 and the conformed plans are just around the corner in March. Metal decking on the roof was spread and reached completion with ongoing welding inspections. Second-floor deck concrete pours are complete. Pre-cast panel welding inspections were begun and will continue in March. Focus is now on pre-cast panel installation, above ceiling fire sprinkler piping installation, and above ceiling electrical conduit installation continues. Layout for interior priority metal stud walls is being completed in preparation for their upcoming installation. Primer for the structural steel continues with rollers on the structural steel with the painting team working hard to stay ahead of the pre-cast panel installation. Pour back of the ConXTech columns cavities were completed. Welding inspections of the metal decking along with welding of the pre-cast attachment plates is ongoing. Our team continues to monitor safety and has been exemplary in its efforts to send our craft home safely to their loved ones.
