Vanir provided project and construction management services for the new Emergency Operations Center/Public Safety Building (EOC/PSB) for the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office. Vanir managed the construction of the County’s new $64 million Administration Building at the same time, both under a single design-build procurement.
The two-story EOC/PSB is equipped with state-of-the-art disaster management and public safety technology. It is certified LEED Gold and designed to operate independently during an emergency. The facility has combined key operations onto a centralized campus—including Sheriff’s administration, field operations, communications, coroner and emergency services divisions. It features a Sheriff’s situation center that contains a 32-foot by 14-foot video wall composed of 48 LCD screens, capable of displaying dozens of live streams from other agencies. It also features a conference room with a back wall (glass garage door) that opens up entirely to become an indoor/outdoor space.
