For the new regional operations center, San Mateo County turned to AECOM for design, McCarthy Construction to build and One Workplace to supply flexible furniture solutions to keep the critical building and staff operational 24/7.
“One of this innovative building’s highlights is its ability to house folks with very stressful jobs into working conditions that are lighter and more relaxed.” Supervisor Carole Groom
Flexibility is a key design component for both architecture and furniture; dedicated conference rooms with expandable walls easily convert to a response center with the use of folding tables and stackable chairs. Furniture design requirements include desking for dedicated functions like the 911 center, and ad hoc spaces for deputies and other personnel who spend most of their time in the field.
