Bentonville Emergency Communications Center

Nabholz Construction recently completed the new Bentonville Emergency Communications Center. Located behind the Bentonville Police Department, the facility is quite impressive. The front part of the building houses a two story very large multi-purpose room, workout room, detective area, conference rooms and offices.

The adjoining back part of the building houses the dispatch (Emergency Communications Center). This building is built to withstand an F5 tornado and redundant electrical and mechanical backup systems, all to protect and serve through communications in worst case scenario. The walls are well over a foot thick, I can't imagine the extra extremes Nabholz went through to make this facility what it is. This building has not only office spaces but also, locker room, kitchen/break area but also classroom space that doubles as emergency command room.

For those that may be interested, the scene took planning and forethought to make this room filled with black furnishings to 'pop'.

Element Hotel

I am blessed to have friends are local 'hoteliers" in NW Arkansas and I've learned a lot about the hotel industry over the years. I'm amazed at the number of hotels in the area, but given the year round activities and corporations in the area, I'm not surprised.

One of the newer hotels in the area is the Element in Bentonville, located behind Cracker Barrel on Moberly Lane. This hotel has the same owner as the new Fairfield in Fayetteville. It has a fresh, clean open feel complete with large workout facility, free loaner bikes to residents and the rooms have compete mini kitchenettes.

Despite the many hotels in the area, especially Rogers/Bentonville, there are new ones being built as this is written. We are fortunate to have so many to choose from.
