The Wayne County office building at 16 William Street houses the Treasurer, Real Property, Information Technology, and Compliance departments, along with a Sheriff’s Office Substation. In 2019, the building was vacated and the SWBR team got to work on a major renovation.
The first and second floors were completely renovated, allowing the County to maximize the building’s square footage for all the services located there. The project also included energy conservation improvements such as new doors, windows, spray-foam insulation, roof insulation and LED lighting with occupancy sensor control. The building has a new roof, while exterior brick was repaired and painted. There are also areas of new exterior siding, window awnings; new furniture, a new HVAC system; a new electrical service and backup generator, a new fire sprinkler system; improved security access controls, and exterior and interior signage.
“The layout is vastly improved,” said County Administrator Rick House. “We’ve received numerous compliments from the residents of Lyons.”
SWBR provided architectural, structural engineering, and interior design services on the project.
