Superior Court/Center for Juvenile Matters
 Back to profile Page    Next Project 

The new home for the juvenile courts and detention facility in this waterfront city is both a much needed replacement facility to provide services for youth at risk, but also a key element in the revitalization of this struggling city's historic waterfront. The project is composed of two separate buildings -- a courthouse and a detention facility, linked by a vehicular sallyport. The site is organized to make the courthouse the prominent public face and the detention a more private background element.

Constructed by the design-build delivery method, the 100,000 SF complex provides three courtrooms in the courthouse and 44 sleeping rooms in the detention facility. RicciGreene Associates led the design effort from concept and programming stage through design development, with JCJ Architecture responsible for management and production as the architect of record. Turner Construction is the builder and overall project manager.
