Project Features
  • Extensive renovation to tilt wall warehouse
  • Clerestory openings create abundant natural light
  • Graphics & branding, major design component
This existing 81,000 sf tilt wall warehouse was renovated to include the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Annex (46,000 sf) and the Harris County Library Administrative Offices (35,000 sf). Extensive facility and site assessments were completed in 2013. Renovation challenges included separation for all utilities and project identity from the adjacent warehouse. On the exterior, pilasters of burnished concrete block and cast stone, metal panel façade, and new canopies with graphic signage identify this Harris County Administration Office building. On the interior, it was determined that the space would benefit from adding three large clerestory openings to the roof to bring light into the interior offices and open workstations. The site has been completely renovated with the addition of a monument sign, landscaping, site lighting, ornamental security fence, and an outdoor deck.
