Design-build team picked for $95m operations center

Contra Costa County has appointed a design-build team for its US$95m new administration building and emergency operations center.

The contract has been won by Hensel Phelps, Fentress Architects, and Dreyfuss & Blackford Architecture. This project consists of two separate buildings located on two distinct sites in the city of Martinez, California.

The four-story, 71,000-square-foot administration building will house office space for a variety of county departments and it will also include a large assembly chamber on the first floor for meetings. The second floor will serve as employee spaces, with the third and fourth floors providing offices, conference rooms, work stations and support spaces for the county.

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will be will have two storys and an area of 38,000 square feetIt will include a training lecture hall and will serve as a planning and media center for the sheriff’s department. It will also include breakout conference rooms, a situation room, a fitness area and office space to accommodate the sheriff’s operations. A major feature of its design will be its ability to operate independently for up to a week if a natural disaster or crisis event occurs that dismantles the city’s utilities or requires an emergency assembly. In addition to building the new facility, the team will undertake renovations on the existing building.

Both new buildings are targeting LEED Gold certification.
