Project Capsule: Nye County IT Modular Office System
This building was designed to match identically to the Nye County complex that currently houses several government agencies. The footprint had to be specially designed and engineered to maximize the space allotted. It is comprised of an office space, IT room, break room, restrooms, and a storage area for an ATV. The floor finishes are a combination of wood laminate, composite flooring, and ceramic tile. The electrical design is complex and uses numerous electrical panels that support an intricate IT backup system for the entire county. The exterior matches the opposite end of the complex with stone veneer and stucco siding with relief scoring. The high parapets allow for consistency with the surrounding buildings.
Because this modular office system was designed to be a permanent part of the Nye County complex, a stem wall foundation was constructed to support the perimeter framed building. The foundation has intermittent Sonotubes® for support. Insulation, white EPDM roofing, and insulated glass windows help to create an efficient and comfortable atmosphere for the IT service employees. The electrical panels include a switch panel that automatically switches to the generator in the case of lost power. Applying the stucco and stone façade exterior finish on-site allowed us to perfectly match with the other buildings in the complex.
