Charlotte County Justice Center Renovation/ Remodel

The existing Justice Center, originally completed in 1999, currently consisted of a five-story building interconnected with a three-story building. The purpose of the project was to meet the needs of the county in the coming years through efficient designs and construction, along with technology. Most typical justice center functions are housed on site including Circuit and County Courts, Court Administration, Clerk of Courts, State Attorney, Public Defender, Sheriff’s Civil Office and Court Security, and other support functions such as Jury Assembly, Law Library, and public waiting and vending areas.

The renovations/remodeling were accomplished while keeping the Justice Center open and in operation. High levels of security were maintained throughout the construction, with minimal disruption to existing court functions and activities. Due to court operations, some construction was anticipated to occur at night and on weekends. The initial phase of construction included the relocation of the County Records to an off-site location, enhanced security improvements, additional courtrooms and holding cells, and interior relocation, as well as remodeling the existing Justice Center Departments.

The design and construction will incorporate LEED “green” building concepts into the project where practicable. In addition, Building Information Modeling (BIM), 3D Modeling will be utilized throughout the project.
