The City of Houston / Greater Harris County 911 Emergency Center project was the design, construction and financing of a 128,000 square foot facility to house the City’s combined public safety communications operations.
The facility is a two-story, single use facility located on an approximate 10-acre site in near north Houston. The structure, which is cast-in-place with masonry exterior, is specifically designed to meet the structural and windload requirements to withstand winds up to 150 mph.
This project was delivered in March 2002 under an expedited schedule.
