The Morris County Public Safety Complex project consists of a new 40,000 sf hardened addition to the existing Fire and Police Academy building including 14,000 sf of renovations to the existing building. The new addition contains the Morris County Crime Lab and new county IT servers on the first floor, the Emergency Communication Center with 32 dispatch stations on the second floor and the Emergency Operations Center on the third floor. The spaces within the existing building that are being vacated once the new addition is complete will be renovated into office and training space.
In addition to the overall construction, the project required the following:
- The addition was designed to withstand all types of natural and manmade threats, included in the design are redundant water, power and IT systems.
- The first phase of the project completed in the summer of 2011 involved relocating all the existing utilities from under the future building footprint to allow the Owners operations to continue uninterrupted throughout the construction phase.
