Volusia County Emergency Operations Center

The project consisted of a new 43,000 SF hardened shelter facility to house the consolidated Sheriff’s Communications, 911 Dispatch, and Emergency Operations Command Centers. The building was designed to resist 180 mph winds and an EF3 tornado, and the lobby included bullet-resistant interior walls. This single story building was constructed of a concrete tilt panel exterior with structural steel superstructure and was developed on a green site. Interior spaces includes two state-of-the-art primary command centers as well as areas for Media/Broadcasting, cafeteria/break areas, bunk rooms, conference rooms and other support spaces. The building was outfitted with state of the art systems to upgrade the previous emergency network. Building systems included a highly energy efficient HVAC design incorporating Ice Storage technology and the project team pursued LEED Silver, as well as 2 GREEN GLOBE, certification of the facility.
