GWINNETT COUNTY POLICE HEADQUARTERS ANNEX & E911 COMMUNICATION CENTER

The annex is home to the County’s E-911 communications center, emergency operations center and backup data center. The project came in with a lower price tag and two months ahead of schedule.

The one-story, 45,000-square-foot Police Annex and E-911 Center construction began in September 2008 and was completed in November 2009. Competitive market conditions permitted the County to reduce the original total project budget from $20 million to $18.7 million.

The building and associated parking will accommodate 180 employees and was designed to meet standards for hardened facilities using guidelines from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA 361). The pre-cast concrete was a natural envelope material for accommodating facility hardening required by FEMA 361.
