San Luis Obispo New Dispatch Center
The City hired RRM Design Group to perform the needs assessment and develop the program for their new Public Safety Dispatch Center for the Police and Fire Departments. The new Dispatch Center will house six call takers/radio dispatchers on a tiered dispatch floor with offices for the dispatch supervisor and communication center manager. The building also allocates space for report writing and the on-duty police lieutenant. The combined equipment room will be built to accommodate all radio, CAD, telecommunications, and security equipment and technology required at move-in, and provides space for future expansion and equipment replacement. RRM designed the dispatch console and worked with the City to develop the RFP for bidding. This project is located in the historic Railroad District in San Luis Obispo. The building design and materials used are reflective of the rich history of the area and the railroad era.
