Harris County 911 Call Center

Project summary provided by submitting company.

Harris County's 911 Call Center, while only 2 stories high, is a fresh take on government buildings. The 28 panels totaled in 20,000 square feet of concrete and were far from the just the smooth, plain lines of most government buildings. These panels had architectural form liners and cast-in-place reveals that created a unique and aesthetically pleasing twist on official office buildings. This attention detail brought the project to life. The TAS team also was able to utilize an impressive amount of recycled content for the building. Totaling over 9,500 tons, the materials that were able to be used to achieve this high weight included rebar, cement, fly ash, limestone and sand.
