Talquin Electric Cooperative Member Services Facility
Extensive programming was utilized to provide our client with the ideal building for their new Member Services Facility for Wakulla County. The new building was designed to fit in with the surrounding residential neighborhood, while presenting a coastal feel. Metal roofing and hardiboard siding were incorporated to cut down on maintenance issues. The building was designed to withstand hurricane force winds, as this facility would house emergency vehicles for countywide coordination efforts. High end radio and telecommunications equipment were incorporated into the facility, as was a bank teller and drive through. Security was very important to the client because this facility collects utility payments from throughout the county and surrounding areas.
The project includes all work required to construct the Wakulla Area Office Building, microwave building and radio tower for Talquin Electric Cooperative, Inc. Including; exterior wood frame construction and pre-engineered wood trusses, installation of gypsum drywall partition systems, installation of new doors, finish hardware, floor and ceiling finishes, concrete ramps and stairs with handrail and guardrail systems, standing seam metal roof systems, installation of mechanical, electrical, fire alarm and plumbing systems.
