Mission Critical Facilities
Winbourne Consulting has considerable experience in the design, construction and operation of Command Centers in support of public safety and other agency mission-critical operations.
Our firm’s staff is knowledgeable of the applicable standards, environmental regulations, regulating agency license application and approval process, applicable electrical and building codes, and next generation 9-1-1 systems that impact 9-1-1 centers. We have worked on over 40 PSAP design, construction and integration projects and have worked with architectural firms that typically are responsible for the building design meeting the local, state and federal environmental regulations, regulating agency license application and approval process, applicable electrical and building codes. We have worked extensively with National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 1221 and other key standards that guide the design of mission critical facilities such as 9-1-1 centers.
In particular, we have designed and integrated two of the Washington, DC region’s preeminent communications and coordination operations centers: in the District of Columbia and Fairfax County, VA.
Our team of facilities subject matter experts are well-versed in:
- Evaluating and determining operational requirements
- Assessing technology required to support the 311/EOC missions
- Designing and integrating Voice, Video, and Data
- Designing the physical layout of the center
- Space programming
- Determining critical redundancy requirements and backup support
