Alabaster Municipal Complex
In order to accommodate significant growth in the City of Alabaster, city leaders envisioned a new administrative building that would bring key departments under the same roof and allow for more efficient service to the Alabaster community. TURNERBATSON transformed this vision and designed a functional, attractive, and cost-effective new municipal complex to house multiple government departments.
The exterior of the building features rugged cedar beams and stone veneer and exhibits a stately, yet inviting appeal. Traditional detailing, natural light, and comfortable interiors add to the welcoming environment. The building is part of a municipal campus that also includes the Alabaster Senior Center (also designed by TURNERBATSON). The campus backs up to Buck Creek and includes a historic water tower and single-cell jail dating back nearly 80 years.
As a fully functional government facility, the new administrative building houses the Mayor's offices, Building Services, Revenue, Municipal Court, city engineers, accounting personnel, and the Alabaster Schools headquarters. The building's courtroom, which also functions as council chambers, accommodates approximately 180 people. Audio and video capabilities provide the opportunity to broadcast government meetings, and modern security features discretely provide safety for staff and visitors.
