The project will consist of a new 20-story, 741,000 SF Civil and Family Courthouse which includes 45 full-size courtrooms, 12 smaller courtrooms, 18 hearing rooms, and staff and support spaces.
The project will also include the construction of pedestrian bridges and improvements to the existing east wing of the existing courthouse facility. The first step will be the demolition of the existing 400-car parking garage, which will make room for the new 20-story courthouse tower. Upon completion, the older portion of the judicial complex will be demolished and a new 500-space parking garage will be built.
This project is intended to be LEED Certified. Cleveland Construction's scope of work included furnishing and installation of the building's cold-formed metal framing, sheeting, thermal insulation, gypsum board assemblies, Portland cement plastering, interior acoustical plastering, aluminum wall cladding system and bullet resistant protection.
