Sheriff’s Office’s Ultra-Modern Operations Center Is Dedicated, Ending 4 1/2 Years of Nomadic Existence
From FlaglerLive.com – “After holding up the Certificate of Occupancy for the new Operations Center on Commerce Boulevard this afternoon–it had been a four-and-a-half-year wait–Sheriff Rick Staly spoke of the long-time deputy who was driving by the building recently and stopped to investigate an open door and an alarm. “I really think the curiosity and excitement just got to him and he just wanted to see the building,” Staly said, “because at that time, there was no alarm set.” A crowd of several hundred that had spread out in the plaza and parking lot front of the 51,600 square-foot building laughed. “But what he said speaks volumes to how much this building means to the employees and the future of the Sheriff’s Office. He told me that as a longtime employee of the Sheriff’s Office, and I quote, he never thought that in his career, we would have such a professional building to work from. So with that I say to our employees: welcome home.”
The unveiling of the brand new District 3 Administration on December 19th was a very exciting event not only for the FCSO, but also for Ajax Building Company and our AE partner, Architects Design Group. This new administration building replaced the previous facility that was sick from mold. The project consisted of the development of an 8 acre site for the construction of their new 51,615 SF building. The sitework included the installation of aggregate piers, all underground utilities and asphalt parking/drive lanes. The main building was constructed with tilt-up concrete panels with structural steel columns, beams & joists.
