This 55,000 SF public safety complex includes fire and police administration offices, evidence storage, booking, police dispatch, fitness center, locker room, and vehicle bay. The public safety complex also includes Cartersville Fire Station No. 4 with three drive-through bays, day room, and sleeping quarters for 15. The building was designed to provide a back-up location for the emergency operations center with a training room, watch room, and redundant power supply. The new facility was constructed to be LEED Certified, utilizing sustainable site design, water and energy efficiency, and by recycling over 95% of the construction waste.
This project consisted of the new construction of a two-story public safety building which houses the Chamblee Police Department including K-9 units, Municipal Court operations, a publicly accessible community room, K-9 holding kennels, sally port, intake and holding areas, specimen collection labs, and office suites. The site also features a 17-acre public park with a dog recreation area.
This project for the DeKalb County Public Safety Department involved the interior renovation of two five-story buildings totaling 250,000 SF. Both buildings were completely renovated including finishes, mechanical systems, and structural elements to accommodate the new headquarters for the county police and fire departments as well as the county 911 Center — the third largest in the country behind Los Angeles and Miami. The police headquarters houses the DeKalb Police precinct, holding cells, crime scene investigation unit, investigator offices, chief of police office, conference rooms, and training rooms. The sophisticated 20,000 SF 911 Center includes 42 call stations, three supervisor stations, an emergency management agency room, IT storage and repair, server room, and a training area. All areas were built utilizing the latest in communications and technology.
