We provide maintenance and management services to owned and leased facilities housing county departments. County operations currently occupy 570,034 square feet in more than 80 buildings ranging in size from 600 to 59,000 square feet. Services provided include general maintenance; janitorial and landscape services; maintenance and repair of HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning), plumbing, electrical, lighting and mechanical systems; fire/safety/code compliance; project management for construction and remodeling; utilities management; and leasing of facilities.
Staff performs fire/life safety, indoor air quality, water quality, indoor lighting standards, building and electrical code and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) inspections. Tests and analyses are conducted on a routine and special requirement basis for the safety and comfort of the general public and employees and to ensure compliance with codes and legal standards.
The county is involved in a Facilities Master Planning process that will produce a proposed blueprint for siting county offices, clinics and justice services for more efficient and cost-effective operations. This plan will identify opportunities and potential costs for consolidating related functions and reducing the number of county buildings. As a result of this effort, citizens should enjoy better access to county services.
