ADG working in association with the Brentwood, TN firm of Thomas, Miller & Partners (TMP) provided planning and design services for the Williamson County EOC and Communications Center. The project was initiated with a detailed Space Needs Assessment, Master Planning and Preliminary Design tasks lead by ADG. The project transitioned to TMP as the final design lead / architect of record; with ADG serving in a “peer review” and specialized facility design resource role. The following elements are included in the 52,000 square foot facility.

  • Emergency Communications Center
  • Office of Emergency Management Agency
  • Emergency Operations Center
  • Multi-use (Training) Facilities

The site is located with other County holdings southwest of the County seat of Franklin. The site area of 7.2 acres is part of a larger parcel of 27.4 acre that includes Public Works Operations. The Master Plan for the 7.2 acres developed by ADG provides access by a connector road north to the Public Works Complex and the potential for a future road that will provide a secondary means of access/egress. The Site Planning also provides expansion provisions to incorporate future Law Enforcement (Sheriff) Administration and Training facilities.

The facility is designed to be self-sufficient and sustainable for a minimum of 72 hours. The building envelope will survive an EF5 tornado with wind speeds of 250 mph; and impact, storm shelter criteria established by ICC – 500 – missile impact level of a 15 lb 2×4 at a speed of 100 mph.
