The Oconto County Law Enforcement Center is a new, $32-million structure, consisting of offices for the County Sheriff, a jail facility, emergency-management offices and emergency operations center. Adjacent to the county courthouse, with 148 inmate beds the new jail replaced a 69-bed facility that typically was overcrowded with an average of 85 housed per day.
The commercial flooring division of H.J. Martin and Son handled the entirety of flooring needs for the two-story, 94,000-square-foot building. Several types of traditional flooring products, along with Tate® access flooring, were put into place by 2-3 installers in phased work on this project.
Access flooring was utilized within the emergency operations center for its ability to hide critical infrastructure while also providing customized airflow solutions. Interface® ESD carpet tile also was installed in this area for its anti-static properties.
Patcraft carpet tile was installed in office areas, along with Armstrong® Bio-based tile for its design quality and performance.
The jail facility saw the installation of Polyflor™ commercial sheet vinyl for its durability and ease of maintenance. It was complemented by ECOsurfaces rubber sheet flooring, chosen for its performance characteristics.
