Sumter Public Safety Buildings
Ajax led the Design-Build team to construct two Public Safety Centers for Sumter County near The Villages and City of Bushnell. The Villages Center was designed to approximately 60,000 SF and is two stories. It included the Northern headquarters for the Sheriff’s Office, as well as the County’s Emergency Operations Center. Fire, Ambulance and Emergency Medical Services offices are also housed in The Villages Center, as well as 911 Joint Dispatch and Emergency Call Centers. Holding cells were included for prisoners awaiting transport to the county jail in Bushnell. The smaller 20,000 SF Public Safety Center in Bushnell housed the Sheriff’s Southern office and served as a backup facility for capability for all other services.
