The Florida Department of Health desired to consolidate several departments and local Palm Beach County Health Department Division into a new headquarters facility. JLRD's expertise of HVAC, fire protection and electrical infrastructure systems were key factors to this project’s ability to meet the various users needs, while being under budget and delivered on schedule.
This building consists of general office space, conference rooms, a computer room, and accounting, IT training, break rooms, lockers, and pseudo-EOC/Post Event operations for the Palm Beach County Health Department to support Emergency Operations Center functions. Strategic areas of the building, approximately 30-percent, are completely backed up by the local 600 KW generator to provide continuous power, lighting, telecommunications, convenience receptacles, satellite farm, air conditioning, elevators, and various other systems in these select critical areas.
Although the Owner did not have a defined program for current and future data processing needs; JLRD held meetings with the Owner’s staff to help develop requirements for the complete data processing/telecom design which was completely bid per the contract documents.
