Since the beginning of 2020, Birmingham-based general contractor Robins & Morton has completed four large-scale government services division projects — projects that help federal, state and local agencies provide vital community services.
The city of Opelika hired Robins & Morton for its new police department and municipal court building. Completed in April and designed by architectural firm Seay Seay & Litchfield, the 38,000-square-foot facility houses administration, investigative services, patrol division, 911 communications, evidence storage, holding cells, courtroom facilities, a training room and an exercise room. Also, on the campus is the 550-square-foot K9 building and six indoor/outdoor dog kennels.
In Cherokee, North Carolina, the second phase of the Cherokee Indian Hospital was completed in June. The $36 million behavioral health and crisis stabilization unit is a 77,000-square-foot addition that provides the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians with behavioral health services and substance abuse treatment areas. Architectural firm McMillan Pazdan Smith designed the project to reflect elements from the Cherokee culture, including details like the terrazzo floor depicting a Cherokee legend.
The Alternate Care Facility built inside the Miami Beach Convention Center was completed in just 12 days in April in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The $26 million, 250,000-square-foot project included 400 acute care patient rooms, 50 isolation rooms, nurses’ stations and support areas. RLF served as architect on the project that was completed for the Jacksonville District of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
In Fort Hood, Texas, Robins & Morton built the Fort Hood Billy Johnson Dental Clinic for the Mobile District of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Completed in February, the $24 million, 36,725-square-foot design-build renovation included 57 dental treatment rooms, four surgical rooms, a laboratory, central sterile and transition space. It was designed by Sherlock, Smith & Adams Inc.
