New Bessemer State DHR building

Update: New DHR Building opens.

Here are drawings of the new Bessemer State Department of Human Resources building scheduled to be built next year. After completion the DHR services for our area will be consolidated into one building. This will increase both efficiency and security for clients as well as employees.

The building will be situated at the corner of First avenue and 20th Street. Currently the lot is vacant.

This is the view from the front, along 20th Street.

This view is from the side, along 1st Avenue.
The building will be around 52000 sq feet, two story. Around 150 employees will work in the building.
The Bessemer Public Building Authority has approved these preliminary drawings as well as the preliminary plans.
Ground breaking will probably be in late January or early February, 2010.

Now this building looks more the other buildings around. Unlike the jail and the library.

The architects from Hatch Mott and MacDonald spent a good deal of time in Bessemer studying the buildings and the bricks and all. We are very pleased.

Finally, something is being done right in Bessemer (at least it looks like the building belongs in Bessemer)!
