The Ramsey County (RC) Plato Building contains offices for the County Assessor, Property Tax, Election Services, Examiner of Titles, County Recorder, Tax Forfeited Lands, Public Health, Emergency Management, Vital Records and Veterans Services.
The 12,000 SF fourth floor previously housed a department with traditional staff cubicle workstations and now serves as a flexible work area for any RC employee. The design features options for staff to use touchdown stations, group work areas, huddle rooms, conference rooms, and enclosed pods and phone booths for sensitive conversations. New and existing furnishings were coordinated with a RC designer.
The open layout enables even better exterior views of greenery and downtown skyline views. In order to meet accessibility requirements, the kitchenette countertop was replaced with a thinner countertop, which eliminated a costly cabinet remodel.
