S&P Breaks Ground On Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office Training Facility

Satterfield & Pontikes Construction (S&P) gathered together with honored guests from local law enforcement, county commissioners, and community residents to break ground on the new Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office (FBCSO) Training Facility in Rosenberg, Texas. S&P has the privilege of being the general contractor for the project. 

Notably in attendance were Fort Bend County Sheriff Eric Fagan, Commissioner Vincent Morales, Commissioner Grady Prestage, Commissioner Andy Meyers, Deputy Barry Curtis, Assistant Chief Deputy Manuel Zamora, and Stonehenge Holdings President Kevin Matocha. 

“S&P is a capable and qualified group,” said Prestage. “The nearby Fort Bend County Epicenter is an example of their exceptional work and commitment to Fort Bend County.” 

Due to the limited availability of training locations exclusively for officers, FBCSO personnel have previously had to undergo training in unsuitable and inconvenient sites, including a closed school containing asbestos and an unguarded parking lot.  

“This facility marks a significant advancement in law enforcement training for Fort Bend County.” said Nic Flannery, S&P President. “With modern, state-of-the-art resources, law enforcement personnel will have the tools they need to uphold safety and security in our community. We’re dedicated to ensuring Fort Bend County stays one of the safest counties in our nation.” 

The Training Facility will be developed across 30.25 acres of land, with multiple buildings totaling 190,000 square feet. The two-story Academy Building, spanning 80,000 – 85,000 square feet, will feature a 250-person auditorium, tiered classrooms, fitness center, defensive training facilities, and a kitchen/dining area that can also serve as a staging area for emergency deployment if needed. 

The gun range will include 20 lanes for a 25-yard handgun qualification course and 20 additional lanes for long rifle and shotgun training. 

Additionally, the Simulation Facility will provide immersive training scenarios across 33,390 square feet, while other areas such as the half-mile driving track, outdoor obstacle course, skills tower, half-acre K-9 & handler course, and parade deck will cater to diverse training needs and ceremonial events. 

S&P is thrilled to work with Fort Bend County, Stonehenge Holdings and AutoArch Architects on this monumental and meaningful project.
