For the past 10 months, the Construction Code Enforcement building has been undergoing a renovation, affecting both customer and staff spaces. The South building, nearing completion in the next few weeks, features a revamped Service Center where staff are already serving about 20 customers per day, with the expectation of a steady increase over time. The new layout of the Service Center is intended to be welcoming for customers and to allow for easier interaction between customers and staff. Once work has concluded on the Administrative offices, the Department of Housing will move into the South building, and the Training department will move to the North building.
In addition to updates inside the building, Shelby County will soon begin work to install a solar array and 2 fast charging stations at the Construction Code Enforcement building. The solar array will have the capacity to power the entire building, and the fast charging stations will allow future fleet transition to electric vehicles. These charging stations will charge a vehicle in under an hour. The charging station will be located in the southeast corner of the building’s parking lot. In addition, the County’s selected vendor, PATH Company, LLC will install a second solar array that will power Shelby County Government’s East Data Center nearby.
