The County of Madera has developed ad-hoc admin­istrative and court spaces for the past 50 years, adapting and expanding various small buildings around the county as they became available. As a result, public services were scattered, duplicated and inefficient. Our team was selected in 2003 to develop a program for consolidat­ing county services and improving customer service in Madera, Oakhurst and Chowchilla.

A new government service center is now located in downtown Madera, adjacent to the historic county courthouse. It has a 400-car parking garage. The 4-story complex consolidates major government depart­ments in a common location, greatly improving services to the community. A new board room and training/meeting rooms will provide public meeting space adequate to serve the County well into the 21st century.
