Visalia Emergency Communications Center

Project summary provided by submitting company.

The Visalia Emergency Communications Center Project (VECC) project consists of a 18,800 s.f., two-story building on a 4.2 acre site. The new emergency communications center houses the City's 911 dispatch team as well as the temporary housing of the fire department administration and traffic management team. This is one of three phases of a civic center master plan that will eventually also include a new police station, evidence storage building, and a relocation of the City Hall.

The facility design utilizes a concrete tilt-up wall system with a structural steel frame, concrete slab on grade, a concrete fill over metal deck floor system and a single plyroofing over rigid insulation over a metal deck roofing system.
