Complete development and construction of a 786,000-sf justice center complex consisting of a five level courthouse, 14 two-level housing units, a two level detention support structure, a three level parking structure with 600 spaces, and various support buildings and areas on an 18.7-acre site. The courthouse structure contains 23 courtrooms and a number of general office spaces. It was constructed over pilings with an exterior of brick, precast concrete and aluminum-framed windows. The detention housing units will hold 64 cells per unit in a two level configuration. The cells surround an open two story day room which opens onto each unit’s outdoor exercise area. A three level, 120,000-sf parking garage with post-tensioned concrete accommodates 600 vehicles. There is also a support building with medical clinics, food service areas, and various support spaces and a central plant, which provides mechanical and electrical services to the entire facility.
