Mary E. Buchan Family Court Center

Marion County, South Carolina

The Mary E. Buchan Family Court Center relocated the county administrative and family court functions into a vacated Walmart facility. The 52,000-square-foot renovation creates offices for staff from personnel, payroll, auditor, solid waste, building inspections, planning/grants, probate judge, veteran’s affairs, tax assessor, tax collector, county council, treasurer, and voter registration.

The facility also incorporates a 3,400-square-foot emergency operation center, which includes a main operations room, conference areas, staff offices, and living quarters to accommodate staff during emergency situations with overnight stays.
