Augusta Richmond County Judicial Center
 Back to profile Page    Next Project 

The new Augusta Richmond County Judicial Center consolidates the Superior, State, Civil-Magistrate, Juvenile and Probate courts functions of the county into one 180,000 SF courthouse. RicciGreene Associates led the design in partnership with Turner Associates (Atlanta) and the Woodhurst Partnership (Augusta). The building design was executed with the intent for it to a model judicial facility, not just for the region, but one recognized nationally. The courtrooms implement state-of-the-art technology to make the judicial process more efficient and accurate.

The new judicial center was built in a part of downtown Augusta adjacent to the federal courthouse and a new proposed federal bankruptcy courthouse, and two blocks from the main business corridor. The site simultaneously enhances an area of the city that is in need of economic stimulation and creates a zone marked by dignified government buildings, both county and federal.
