Callas Contractors has begun construction of the 18,450 square foot Ashburn Sheriff’s station in Loudon County, Virginia. The new facility is located in a growing community just north of Dulles Airport and will serve the Ashburn community. Architect Ken Cahoon with Samaha Architects designed the building with sloped a roof for the purpose of avoiding rain water issues that become troublesome on many buildings with flat roofs. The building face is designed with thin brick and aluminum panels for aesthetic purposes and for keeping the sheriff’s station congruent with the surrounding community without portraying the appearance of a typical institutional facility and also incorporates balistic security components (see architect rendering photo below). Callas’ Todd Gess will be the Contractor Quality Control Manager for the duration of this project. Todd competed QC training through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Professional Development Support Center and the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC). Callas Project Manager Don Grabill and Superintendent Walter Jays have also completed the same Quality Control training in preparation for the sheriff’s station. The sheriff’s station is set to be completed on July 24, 2017.
