Bastrop County - Tax Collections Building

The Bastrop County Development Services and Tax Assessor (DSTA) building is a 14,000 SF facility that was constructed on a 5.5-acre green-field site south of SH-71. The building accommodates the County’s Development Services, Tax Assessor Collector, and other offices. Broaddus & Associates was selected as Project Manager.

As Project Manager and the Owner’s single point-of-contact, Broaddus & Associates tracked the budget, monitoring the schedule, and oversaw the project quality. Scope of services included performing a needs assessment, programming, master planning, budget and schedule development, design and construction oversight, as well as move coordination. As the County chose to utilize the Design-Build delivery method, Broaddus & Associates assisted the County in evaluation and selection of the Design-Build team and coordinated with the chosen team for successful project completion.

The new building allows for increased operational efficiency and enabled sharing of common spaces for meetings, training, and storage. Broaddus & Associates helped Bastrop County have a high-quality building that was delivered in a timely, cost-effective manner. We returned $142,778 in savings to the owner.

As part of the DSTA Building project, Broaddus Planning was selected to determine the spatial needs for new administrative and judicial facilities for select departments in Bastrop County, TX. The recommendations gave significant weight to mitigating security and safety concerns that occur in the current facilities for the staff and public utilizing them. To accomplish this study the planning team conducted interviews with each of the stakeholders to determine the spatial requirements into existing and future (5- to 10-year) needs to include square footage, relative adjacencies and security.

This study was conducted in two phases as a 2-part development scheme. Phase I of the study includes the DSTA Building. Phase II will possibly consist of a Justice Court Complex (including new District Courts, District Clerk, and District Attorney space) and Law Enforcement Administration Building (including the Patrol, CID, Communications and Administration departments of the Sheriff’s Office).
