The four-story Denton County Administration Complex involved 95,795 square feet of new construction, including a commissioners court with judge and commissioners suites and support services, a county justice of the peace court, and spaces for constable and human resources departments. Phase III also included over 12 acres of site development for parking, a community park, and water quality and utility improvements.
The new structure boasts prominent architectural features, such as its dome, which peaks at 207 feet. Including the scheduling and 3D modeling of the crane pick of the dome itself, the project showcased Sundt’s use of cutting-edge technology. Synchro modeling of the P6 schedule, drone modeling and other BIM technology were used to help the project team and subcontractors stay on the same page.
Denton County is among the fastest growing counties in the U.S. as part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex’s recent boom in development. With a strong economic forecast and more people moving to the area, Denton has a clear need for expanded public services, including its courts system. Grouping these courts and support units together helps consolidate operations from across Denton County and provide the best services possible to the community.
