Ajax Building Corporation has completed the Leon County and City of Tallahassee Public Safety Complex, a flexible forward-thinking facility that houses many key emergency agencies in one central 100,000 square-foot location.
The PSC was dedicated with a ceremonial first call, ribbon cutting and tours. The $29.9 million facility will become the new home to the Consolidated Dispatch Agency, Leon County Emergency Medical Services, Tallahassee Fire Department Administration, the City of Tallahassee Regional Transportation Management Center and the Leon County Emergency Operations Center.
The main facility was built to withstand a F4 Tornado with 200+ MPH winds and the Logistics building was built to withstand winds from a Category 3 hurricane. The PSC during normal business hours will house about 150 employees, but during emergencies can accommodate 350 to 400 people.
“Ajax Building Corporation finished this project on time and under budget — a testimonial to good management,” commented Tallahassee City Manager Anita Favors Thompson in helping to dedicate the facility. “We couldn’t have put together a better team for this project,” added Leon County Administrator Vince S. Long.
Ajax and Construction Support Southeast, a joint venture, comprised the construction management team.
During construction, approximately 86% of the construction dollars were kept within the local economy with over 25% completed by certified Minority Business Enterprises or Women-Owned Enterprises. An average of 150 people worked on-site each day during construction.
“This state-of-the-art facility will not only allow local public safety personnel a central location to share and communicate information as well as prepare and act on emergencies, it also is engineered and built to quickly accommodate changes in technology well into the future,” said Ajax Vice President Jay Smith.
Key elements of the PSC include:
