On the ground level floor, a number of functions of the demolished buildings have been housed. The floors above have been designated for the new public safety answering point and the required facilities.

The structure consists out of loadbearing prefabricated wall and façade elements and floors of hollow-core slabs and wide-slabs. The building has been founded on auger piles driven with the point into the site’s gravel layer, in accordance with the latest insights into this sedimentary layer that is unique in the Netherlands.
