The District 9 Medical Examiner's Office, one of the first green medical examiner's offices in the country, provides Orange and Osceola Counties with a high-tech, cutting edge forensic facility. Rather than the dark and foreboding facades generally associated with a county morgue, its innovative design presents an open and warm aesthetic.
Design features include multiple elevations for the cooler recesses and exposed stained and polished concrete floors. Separate buildings for the storage of the deceased maintain a higher standard of health and cleanliness for employees and visitors of the facility. The use of recycled concrete, reinforcing materials and plastics helped the structure earn LEED certification.
In addition to offering the growing county four times the capacity of the prior examiner's office, this new facility is the new home for the Discovery Health Chanel's Dr. G: Medical Examiner series.
