DOYLESTOWN >> The Board of Bucks County Commissioners joined President Judge Jeffrey L. Finley, District Attorney Matt Weintraub and members of the adult and juvenile probation departments and county detectives on Jan. 24 in cutting a ceremonial ribbon on the three-story 30 E. Court Street building.
Over the last year, the building (formerly the home of Domestic Relations and Family Court offices) was rehabilitated by the county General Services division and a cadre of contractors. Adult and Juvenile Probation offices will take occupancy of the building along with the detectives over the weekend of Jan. 27-29.
“We are pleased to be able to re-open this dramatically improved facility for our probation officers, our detectives and their hard-working staff,” Commissioner Chairman Charles H. Martin said. “I think the result of this capital project is a building that will serve us well for many years to come, one that includes 21st Century technology to address public safety matters.”
The building will be the work headquarters for approximately 150 county employees in three departments. It features high-security elements, interview and cybersecurity rooms, an open-office work station concept for employees, and spaces for drug/urine testing. It also includes new telephone and information technology equipment, as well as a brand new roof. It is part of the County’s ongoing effort to centralize services in the Doylestown Borough government complex.
General contracting work on the building was completed by TE Construction Services, LLC of Warminster at a cost of approximately $2.3 million. The total cost of the project was $4.3 million.
