A former peanut warehouse, originally constructed in 1919, was renovated and re-used as a core feature flanked by new construction. This building houses the county’s 911 center, emergency operations group, sheriff’s department, and Edenton police department. Featured spaces include console room, training room, holding cells, interview rooms, evidence storage, locker rooms, and administrative support areas.


The building is partially fire-sprinkled. The HVAC systems are, for the most part, 4-pipe VAV systems with a central chiller and two boilers. The 911 center is served by a stand-alone 100% redundant HVAC system. Electrical design includes a full complement of power and lighting. Design of the special systems include a 750 kVA diesel generator (whole building), 40 kVA UPS (911 center), security equipment (camera and door entry), fire alarm and site/security lighting.
