Travis County Precinct One

The Travis County Precinct One Richard E. Scott Building consists of a one level approximately 15,895 sf facility. It houses the precinct’s Justice of the Peace and Constable, along with their administrative staffs. A contiguous, but independently accessed 1,506 sf community meeting room was also included in the design. This room, which is intended for the general public’s use has restrooms and a small kitchenette and was designed with a sense of warmth from the wood cladding and a sense of fun from the colors inside.

The greatest challenge of the project was the different facets of loading that were required due to 75% of the roof needing to support rooftop gardens and a planned future second floor addition. It was determined that the project would be a conventional steel framed structure supporting open web steel joist and concrete on corrugated metal deck. Additionally all major columns loads are supported by concrete piers and the foundation consists of a soil supported slab.
