Architectural planning and design services for an extensive renovation of the County’s two-story, 57,000 SF building containing essential County Departments and functioning as a support facility for the adjacent Emergency Operations Center. 
 
The building envelope was hardened to withstand 180 MPH wind loads and functions as a 24- hour facility, including sleeping quarters. It also has an emergency generator system to provide 100% capacity back-up in case of power failure. This project was phased and people relocated within the building to allow the walls to be hardened and the roof structure to be removed, replaced, and hardened.
