U.S. District Courts Building

U.S. District Courts Building

Yates Construction provided preconstruction and construction management at-risk services for the 425,000 SF project. This project includes twelve federal courtrooms and offices for marshals, district attorneys, trustees, and circuit court officials. The courthouse is a cast-in-place structure with a combination of architectural precast panels and curtain wall. The project’s design opens the conventional courthouse layout, transforming it into two volumes surrounding an open-air rotunda that echoes the interior rotunda of the state capitol seven blocks away. This facility is pursuing USGBC LEED Silver Certification.

This facility is built to anti-terrorism/force protection (AT/FP) and multiple rooms within the facility are built to SCIF standards. The project served as a BIM pilot program for the GSA and received media coverage and scholarly recognition.
