STOA Architects provided complete A/E design services to renovate the existing Fort Bend Central Appraisal District Office to accommodate better workflow among the departments and the design of a new building addition to accommodate appraisal review board offices. A vital element of the design was to design a new entry lobby for the complex that would serve both the new addition and the existing office building. Phase 2 of the campus consisted of expanding two existing office buildings, maintain interior circulation patterns, increase the parking for peak CAD times and dates. Building 01 was maxed-out in regards to the allowable SF, so the expansion was conceived as a separate building with a 2-HR fire separation between existing and new. Special attention was given to coordinate the new structural system dimensions to match existing finished elevations. STOA worked closely with the GM and the County in coordinating the final finish selections of the roof, brick, glass color, and CMU to match existing conditions as much as possible.
