Indigo’s design delivered to the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department the best and most resilient building with the limited budget available. Every improvement considered was evaluated based on law enforcement functionality, cost, and life cycle cost assessment (LCA). Our team has remodeled many similar facilities and is expert at finding the least-cost solutions to the retrofit issues that inevitably arise when bringing an existing building into a new use. Our commitment was to meet all code and regulatory requirements in the most direct and cost-effective manner possible.

This approach was be based on analyses of potential threats to the operations of the Yuba County Sheriff’s facility.
