The Cameron County Annex building combines a number of county offices in a new, user-friendly satellite facility. The county’s tax office, JP courts, and sheriff’s sub-station occupy the new building. Due to the law enforcement aspects of some departments, visitor separation and employee security were important design criteria. The building features a shared atrium space at the entry, which employs natural daylighting to create a pleasant common area. Gignac & Associates have designed a comfortable and safe working environment to meet the needs of county staff and residents.
