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.

December has seen significant changes on the site with the eight-day installation of the building’s steel structure. HP (Hensel Phelps) continues to work with Department of Conservation and Development (DCD) to respond to critical structural design calculations in two areas of the structure for DP4 100%drawings and await permit issuance in the new year. There are four (4) Bulletins to the DP4 drawings which will be issued as well. Metal decking on the second floor has begun and will continue over thecoming four weeks. Primer for the structural steel has begun on the East end of the building. The EOC site has installed one of the two newfire hydrants in preparation for the skin and interior finishes as required bythe CCC Fire Department. Grouting of the column footings is being placed and should be complete before the start of the new year. Bolting inspections for the steel, welding inspections of the steel, and metal decking and grouting inspections continue to be completed by our special inspection team. Our team continues to monitor safety and has been exemplary in its efforts to send our staff home safely to their loved ones. We hope you all had a wonderful Holiday Season and best wishes for the coming new year 2019.
