The Volusia County Information Technology Department offices are located in the 1930’s era Barnett Bank Building on Indiana Avenue adjacent to the Volusia County Administration Center in downtown DeLand. The scope of work for this project involved gutting and redesigning the existing 2-story building while keeping an existing television production studio in operation on the 2nd floor. The redesign included bringing the building into compliance with modern codes. Part of this design challenge was to create an addition for vertical accessibility to the 2nd floor which mimicked the existing exterior design of the structure and working around existing vaults, which had to be functionally incorporated into the design, and the existing exterior doors and windows. The design of this new construction was carefully addressed to blend with the character of the existing building and surrounding structures and hardscaping. The strategy for redesigning the interior evolved around creating sub-department work groups with functional internal relationships while establishing linkages to other sub-departments across two floors of the building. John Stoudenmire Carter Architect, P.A. coordinated the work of other consultants hired directly by Volusia County as well as providing all professional services associated with architecture. The project was built by Aviation Constructors, Inc.
