Project Summary + Solution

The PDX Communications Center is the communications hub for both emergency and non-emergency activities and operates 24/7.  DBC created and implemented a detailed phasing strategy to upgrade and expand the existing center without disrupting ongoing operations.  Project elements included a new training space, new ergonomic furniture, modern finishes, and expansion of the existing inert gas fire suppression system, as well as updated radio, phone, security access, fire alarm, and CCTV systems. DBC staff also customized millwork in the space to meet operational requirements.
