Multi-Agency Communications Center (MACC) 911

Work - Public Safety

The existing Multi-Agency Communications Center 911 was housed in leased space in the Washington National Guard Armory. Because of aging building systems and cramped space, the MACC 911 Board decided to build a new state-of-the-art facility at their existing 3-acre radio communication tower site on South Hamilton Road in northeast Moses Lake.

The design consultant team of ADCOMM Engineering Company and Knit (Formerly ART) were selected to assist MACC in developing a pre-design concept. Interviews were conducted with the MACC user team to ascertain the proposed staffing and space needs projected out to 2034. In addition, Grant County demographic information was researched to determine estimated growth levels for the foreseeable future. Energy efficiency, efficient operations, and expansion capability were primary building design factors.

The design of the 9,776 square foot facility incorporates regional geologic features, landscape material and building material colors to integrate into its natural and regional surroundings.
