This is the pilot project for California’s new Trial Court Facilities Standards. Combining regional materials with crisp, modern architecture, the new justice center establishes an open, transparent presence while satisfying the program needs of a highly advanced regional courthouse.
This building provides traffic, family, criminal trial and arraignment courtrooms. The jury assembly pavilion and entry lobby are carefully isolated, yet can be used after hours by community groups.
Sustainable features include extensive natural light and a green roof system that helps conserve water and cool the building.
Construction was completed in less than two years – on time and on budget.
