Pasco County Courthouse

The Pasco County Courthouse Renovation was an 18 month, 3 phase renovation project in Dade City, Florida. Coordination was the key for this project because all courthouse functions remained in full operation during the entire project.

Phase I included complete interior renovation of one half of the entire building, both 1st and 2nd floors, a new Entrance/Facade and part of the courtyard. Phase I provides a single, secured, public entrance for the entire facility and interior lobby space which the previous courthouse did not have. Also included in Phase I was a temporary courtroom to facilitate the Courtroom being renovated in Phase II.

Phase II and III split the remaining half of the building with work proceeding around existing courtrooms to maintain 3 available courtrooms at all times. Phase II also included the completion of the courtyard along with a new employee entrance. The interior lobby space was also increased during this phase. Over 80% of all areas are new from floor to deck. Additional areas have new finishes and the building has 100% new electrical, mechanical and fire protection systems.
