Clinton County Satellite Office

DeWitt, Iowa

Clinton County Satellite Office

IIW helped Clinton County save more than $1 million in construction costs by identifying an existing building to remodel into a new satellite office to more conveniently serve residents.

IIW assisted the County in finding a suitable space in the city of DeWitt and designed a plan that converted the former DeWitt Candlelight Restaurant into county offices for the sheriff, treasurer, zoning and health departments.

The new space includes a 6,500-square-foot office space for Clinton County services, with meeting spaces and a 3,400-square-foot garage for the Sheriff’s Office vehicles. This allows the vehicles to be protected from the elements as well as a space for much needed storage.

This multi-phase project began with the design and construction of the Sheriff’s Office that included a reception area, three private offices, three hoteling stations for deputies, interview rooms and a break room. Then, a larger main reception area, six additional offices, a conference room and larger community-use Meeting Hall were added.

IIW led and designed the project in three key phases based on the funding available to the County. In the end, this building re-used saved a building from demolition, saved the county and taxpayers construction costs, and provided the County with a much needed branch location to better serve some of its outlying residents.
