STOA International Architects, Inc. / Fort Bend Central Appraisal District Office

Fort Bend Central Appraisal District Office

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. Due to Building 01 reaching its maximum allowable SF, STOA Architects proactively conceived the expansion as a separate building with a 2-HR fire separation between the existing and new structures. Notably, STOA Architects also prioritized coordinating the dimensions of the new structural system to ensure a precise alignment with the existing finished elevations. STOA Architects 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.
