Visalia Emergency Communications Center

“Based on my experience with the team from Griffin Structures, I can say without reservation that I give them my highest recommendation. Griffin Structures would be an excellent addition to any future project you may be considering.”

Mike Porter, Civil Engineer at City of Visalia, VECC Project Manager

Griffin Structures provided construction management services throughout the design and construction of the new 911 Emergency Communications Center (ECC). Set on a 4.2-acre site, the Emergency Communication Center is the first building constructed in the City’s east downtown future civic center complex.

The $16 million, 21,000-square foot facility houses the City’s 911 dispatch services, Emergency Operations Center, Traffic Management Center, Fire Department administrative offices, as well as the City’s Information Services Division. The two-story facility includes an additional $6 million in sophisticated electronic, communications and technology equipment and software including computer-aided dispatch and record management systems (CAD/RMS), a secure data center, and uninterrupted power supply (UPS) rooms.

Griffin’s construction management scope of work included constructability review, construction management, construction inspection, construction surveying, material/soil testing, and other related services. To ensure that no service was interrupted during any phase of the project, Griffin worked with design consultants to prepare the complex plan and timeline to transition existing operations to the newly constructed ECC.
