Completed in three overlapping phases, this extensive remodeling project for the Webster County Law Enforcement Center (LEC) included removal and replacement of sanitary sewer and domestic water systems. The project also included replacement of the building’s masonry veneer, new windows, new lighting, upgraded mechanical systems, new boilers and interior finish upgrades. In addition, a creative piece of art was incorporated into the facade of the building as part of the exterior envelope restoration.
In order to accomplish this remodel, most building occupants were temporarily moved to another location for the duration of construction. However, one of the project’s greatest challenges was to have the jail floor remain partially occupied during construction. Additionally, the communication center had to remain fully operational during construction due to the critical nature of the LEC’s operations. The solution was a multi-phase approach with additional sub-phases to allow migration of staff and prisoners during construction, allowing these critical LEC operations to remain partially or fully functional for the duration of the project.
