Schenectady County Public Service Building
Schenectady County|Schenectady, New York
architecture+ provided programming, planning, and design services for this new $6.5 million, two story, 39,800 square foot office building for Schenectady County located in a historic district of the city. This project was undertaken to consolidate the interrelated staff from the Departments of Domestic Social Services, Adult Probation, Juvenile Justice, and the Child Advocacy Center to increase efficiency while keeping their employees safe and secure. This was completed on the exterior by creating multiple secure entries, exits, and the use of camera surveillance. On the interior, each department was separated through door access control systems with restrictions to protect personnel, files, and data.
