Battling the elements and the cold weather, Burnett County Public Safety Building is making progress. Early on in the project, unsuitable soil conditions proved a challenge, requiring substantial de-watering and importing stone to improve the building’s footprint. With the sitework issue alleviated, the foundation was poured and structural steel set. Currently the exterior precast wall panels and precast plank at cell caps are being installed, while simultaneously the interior masonry block is being constructed. Similar to our previous project for Iowa County, the octagon structure in the center of the building is the master control room, designed for unobstructed sight into each cell pod.
