Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, Susquehanna Township, PA
Estimated completion 2014
SGA, in a joint venture with AECOM Technology Corporation (AECOM), is designing a new state emergency operations center (SEOC).
The approximately 130,000 SF SEOC will contain space for many of the State’s emergency response functions. In addition to ensuring the supply of continuous power and communication that is necessary for the SEOC, the design team will provide a building that will be reinforced and secure for emergency staff. The new facility will provide dedicated emergency services and disaster assistance for the state, with the ability to sustain uninterrupted operations during activations.
Design for this facility will follow sustainability guidelines, as understood by the US Green Building Council’s LEED® certification process. PEMA has a goal of design and construction to achieve at least a LEED Certified rating.
All programming, planning and site master planning preceding the design portion of the project also was completed by SGA/AECOM.
