Josephine County Facilities Study

ORW Architecture was retained to analyze all of the property holdings of Josephine County.  Developed properties were studied to determine the efficiencies for the departments housed within.  Each department manager was interviewed, along with select staff, to explain the challenges that their existing conditions presented and how it affected their ability to conduct business.  Five, ten and twenty-year growth was also taken into consideration.  Existing square footages were compared to required square footage, and new layouts or relocations were recommended.  The primary focus concentrated on the existing County Courthouse, Judicial Building and a new facility for State Courts.  Potential costs, including inflation, were also incorporated into the recommendations, providing the county with a road map for future growth.
