Madison County Administration Building
Located in downtown Richmond east of the existing courthouse, the building exterior has been designed to maintain and enhance the traditional and historic character of the existing building facades that face the courthouse square and to respect the public’s memory, through use of certain distinct shapes, volumes and materials, of the buildings that previously occupied part of the site. Being located at the corner of Second and Irvine Streets, and due to the sloping topography of the site, the primary public entry is located at the first floor facing the Courthouse at the corner of Second and Irvine Streets. A second public entry is located at the rear of the building to facilitate access from the County parking lot behind the building. Due to the limited size of the site, the building fills the entire site from property line to property line. The building is four floors for a total area of 36,640 square feet [9,160 square feet per floor]. The primary exterior material is brick veneer with cast stone water table and cornice trims and cast stone lintels and sills at window openings. The building interior was designed to develop plans that are flexible to permit various size configurations for County and non-County tenant spaces on each floor. Interior spaces have been designed for the County Sheriff, PVA, County Attorney and Finance departments. Non-County tenant spaces have been designed for the County Attorney Child Support division, and Administrative Office of the Courts functions including the Circuit Clerk Drivers License, Court Designated Worker and Drug Court. The top floor has been allocated as Shell space to meet future expansion needs of the County.
