PROJECT // Montgomery County Emergency Communications Center
LOCATION
Gaithersburg, Maryland

DESIGN SOLUTION
Programming , Master Planning, Design, and Construction Document preparation for this state-of-the-art Emergency Communications facility for Montgomery County, MD. The ECC brings together Police, Fire, 911, EMS, into a single high tech communications facility.

The ECC is the hub of the PS2000 $140,000,000 mobile data and radio system for the County. This new 800 Megahertz radio communications system will vault the County into an integrated data and voice communication system. Due to development time tables, it will be located in an existing 57,000 s.f. two-story suburban office building in Gaithersburg, Maryland completely reconfigured and reengineered by SAA. Supported by full building emergency generation, UPS backpower, and diverse routing fiber optic communications feeds, this facility will bring together all emergency services. SAA has planned the building to accommodate the County's Transportation Management Center and the Emergency Operations both currently located in Rockville at the Government Center, this facility will have the unique distinction of being the first fully integrated Communications Services Center in the United States.
