Case Study

Snohomish County

Emergency Operations Center (EOC)

This project consisted of a renovation and addition to convert an existing warehouse building into the new county Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for Snohomish County, Washington.

Salas O’Brien met all of the project’s critical technology and infrastructure needs, including designs for structural upgrades, the addition of a new data center, and construction of a new 150-foot antenna tower.

Salas O’Brien’s designs for the EOC emphasized usability for response in emergency situations. Part of the old warehouse space was converted into a new data center housing the EOC’s network and communications equipment, and extensive structural upgrades were made to bring the building up to immediate occupancy standard.

The finished facility has a state-of-the-art, 2,600-square-foot operations center, a new media briefing room, and approximately 2,500 square feet of office space.
