Arias provided Construction Materials Testing services for the construction of a new Public Safety Answering Point building in on the South East side of San Antonio, Texas. The state-of-the-art 40,000 SF, single-story dispatch center serves as the new Emergency Services Dispatch Center and Emergency Operations Center for the City of San Antonio and surrounding Bexar County.
The facility has a high degree of survivability, including redundant systems to ensure continued operation during power outages and catastrophic events. Beneath the raised flooring in its 115-operator dispatch room are more than six miles of data wiring. The building has two chillers, five air handlers, and four generators.
