SEDGWICK COUNTY, KANSAS
OxyChem was in need of a new Security Office to oversee the access to the plant facilities. Phase I of the project involved the construction of this new office, located so its personnel can oversee vehicular traffic passing through the adjacent gate as well as pedestrian traffic accessing the building. New fencing and turnstiles were added to better control pedestrian access. A new canopy was incorporated to provide protection for the pedestrians at the turnstiles. Phase II (shown in the renderings below) calls for an additional canopy designed to generate a new appearance for the main entrance to the existing facility. The materials and forms used for the new office and canopy additions borrow from the existing facilities, tying the old and new together.
