Facilities Design and Construction
The Facilities Design and Construction is responsible for the design, bidding, contract development, and construction administration of facilities projects. Projects include new building construction, renovations, large maintenance and repair projects as well as park development projects. At the direction of the Mobile County Commission, senior centers, community centers, and parks are also developed and executed for local municipalities.
Building Maintenance is the focal point for Mobile County facility preservation. Building Maintenance facilitates the maintenance, expansion, remodeling, and repair of County-owned and leased facilities.
Building Maintenance employs a staff of highly skilled professional Supervisors, Trades, Crafts, Supply and Administrative personnel. In addition to responding to daily service requests and performing planned maintenance, Building Maintenance personnel respond 24/7 to emergency situations involving matters of public safety or the destruction and degradation of the assigned facilities.
Custodial Services makes up a key component of the Facilities team. It is comprised of a team of highly dedicated staff responsible for ensuring a clean and healthy environment at key Mobile County facilities.
The Electronics is made up of two branches, each with distinctive support services.
The Radio Systems administers and maintains Mobile County’s non-first responder radio system. This system is used by the Public Works Department and various other public agencies. Additional duties include the maintenance of conventional radio repeaters and general maintenance of the portable radio systems for the Mobile County Commission and Mobile County’s Sheriff Department.
The Electronic Systems provides installation, maintenance, and upgrades for systems such as fire alarms, visual and audio appliances, elevator systems, building automation and controls, security surveillance systems and security access control systems.
