Public Safety Building and Emergency Operations Center

The new Emergency Operations Center/Public Safety Building will be equipped with state-of-the-art disaster management and public safety technology. Sheriff’s Administration, Fiscal, Personnel, and Emergency Services will also be located in this building. The two-story, 38,000-square foot building is designed to operate independently during an emergency if city utilities become unavailable. On March 26, 2018, Contra Costa County selected the design-build team of Hensel Phelps and Dreyfuss + Blackford Architecture to complete this project. The new building is scheduled for completion in March 2020.
