Town of Gilbert Public Safety Complex

Project overview

Vanir was responsible for the overall management of the design and construction of the new public safety complex. This project involved multiple users, including police, fire, administration and central plant departments. We facilitated consensus and developed a strong working team that functioned effectively from concept to completion.

The Vanir team accelerated the schedule for the 911 emergency operators and police dispatch area because the police department needed to occupy the building one month before the other users moved in. This required extreme coordination with the contractor, police department, Qwest 911 service department, Motorola Radio, City of Mesa and the dispatch furniture contractor. The transition went smoothly and was on schedule, with no disruption of this critical service.

This successful project became a crown jewel—other governmental agencies from within the state and out of state visited for tours, complimenting Gilbert on the great design and quality of construction.

We hired Vanir to look after the owner’s interests… they did an outstanding job of doing that.
