The Denton County Government Center in Carrollton serves as a vital role to Precinct 2 and all of Denton County in providing quality services for the community through numerous departments. EIKON served as prime professional for the additions and renovations to the existing Government Center. The existing facility consisted of an approximately 11,000 SF renovation with the majority of the spaces expanding and relocating within the building. The addition consisted of 3,000 SF extending the courtroom, increasing space for additional departments, and providing a secondary entrance.
Exterior improvements were designed to add landscaping improvements to complement the existing memorial and add an employee break area. Site signage was designed to improve way finding to the appropriate departments and an interior information kiosk and interior signage was included as well. During the design, the facility was inspected for TAS/ADA compliance. The project involved remediation of the accessible pathway to the existing entrances from the parking areas in both the front and back of the building. The design incorporates a rustic hill country look with warm, deep tones and natural stone elements. EIKON designed the space so that an additional building can be added in the future. Construction progressed in six sequenced phases to allow the facility to remain fully operational during construction.
