The Construction, Renovation and Building Maintenance division of Facilities Management saves the County thousands of dollars each year. Acquiring materials at a reduced cost through compliant purchasing networks or consortium is one area of savings. Additional savings are realized in project and time management. Our crew is able to adapt its schedule to allow for minimal interference or disruption of County operations.
During 2019 our staff worked diligently to meet State mandated requirements for the addition of Courtroom 7 and staff offices within the Main Courthouse. Due to limited space in the Main Courthouse, numerous departments needed to be relocated in other County owned buildings, creating a domino affect of renovations and moves to meet the required completion of the Courtroom 7 by the 12/31/19 deadline.
From 2010 to the end of 2011 the County’s crew played a key role in the office moves and renovations required for the state mandated addition of Courtroom 6.
On an ongoing basis, attention has been directed to changes and security improvements required at the magisterial district court offices. Renovations have been dictated by the need to accommodate an ever growing case load in the local courts. The County received grant money for a large part of the district court projects. However, Facilities Management has been instrumental in maximizing the use of these funds.
