Maintenance of all county-owned facilities, renovation of facilities and the construction of new structures. The department also provides custodial services in a number of locations. Additionally, the Division provides electrical, carpentry, paint, masonry and utility support.
The Facility Services Division of the Public Services Department is currently in the process of completing the construction of a 13,000 square foot metal building to provide a new facility for the Fleet Services. This is a metal building with a two story office space, a large parts room, a tire change room, as well as storage space for lubricants. The facility is complete with Gas heat for the large bays, piping for air to all work spaces and lubricant piping throughout. In addition there is an additional 5,000 square feet under roof to provide for a wash down area for large equipment.
During the period of time that this project was under construction, the division also remodeled an existing Mall in Litchfield Beach to house a Sheriff’s Department substation and a Magistrate Office and Court Room for both the Pawley’s Island and the Murrells Inlet area. As an ongoing part of this project, the Division continues to work with the Georgetown County Economic Development Department as they lease space within the structure.
Howard High School, an old abandoned site, was remodeled to include the 800 person auditorium area, a very large multipurpose room, and a Gymnasium space. This includes new Floors, Ceiling, and the leveling of the old Gym space (some 100 yards of concrete used) as well a new HVAC, Plumbing all new lighting and electrical wiring.
Currently the Division is remodeling a space for a new EMS station in Andrews using the old automotive shop at the Andrews High School as the base.
All of this work is being performed while the ongoing work of maintaining the existing structures throughout the county continues.
The Facility Services division of the Public Services Department is within 90 days of completing the remodeling and reorganization of the 44,000-square-foot historic courthouse. This has been an ongoing project for the past several years and the Architect of Record states that the in-house work done by Facility Services has saved the county in excess of $1 million. One of the major challenges, other than the sheer size of the project, was the ability of accomplishing the work while the departments housed in the structure continued to function there.
At the same time, projects requiring complete remodeling of buildings housing the Department of Juvenile Justice, Voter Registration, Veterans Affairs and the American Red Cross have been completely remodeled, as well. All of the above mentioned projects include not only the physical walls, flooring and ceilings, but also complete new air conditioning duct work and all-new wiring and lighting. During the same period of time a new 60-foot by 80-foot metal building has been constructed from the ground up for the Parks and Recreation Department. The future holds construction of another metal building of the same size as previously mentioned and another metal building which will be three times as large and will house Fleet Services.
