Lavigne Associates Architects

Arlington, Virginia

Construction Cost:
$8 Million

Project Size:
24,000 gsf

The scope of this project for the Arlington County Fire Department included a $180,000 design to budget for technology systems to include: telecommunications cabling (voice, data, RF Video), audiovisual & multi-media enhanced presentations with data/video projection, audio/video recording sessions, surround sound program & speech audio reinforcement along with custom presenter’s stations with associated infrastructure. The primary space to receive technology systems included a three-way sub-dividable classroom. Each section of the classroom contains a custom presenter’s station capable of controlling the audiovisual presentation systems in any or all of the three sections allowing maximum flexibility in the programmed use of the space. The multipurpose classroom space is used to train first responders and emergency personnel. Additional responsibilities included review of the building criteria as they applied to acoustics, noise and vibration control, the development of acoustical criteria for HVAC equipment noise levels and sound isolation, and recommendations for room layout, shaping, and acoustical finishes. Design included complete programming narrative system overview descriptions and detailed per space cost estimating for all technology systems.
