PROJECT // Kent County Courthouse
LOCATION
Dover,
DE

DESIGN SOLUTION
This multiphased project was initiated by a Facility Needs Assessment to identify the Court's current and future Programmatic needs and develop a Master Plan to meet this expansion. The first phase of construction involved the creation of a state of the art, High Tech Court Room in a traditional and historic setting in space made available by the relocation of the State Law Library to an adjacent building.

The construction also focuses on initiating improvements to the inadequate circulation system which resulted in Judicial, Defendant and the Public sharing access to the various Court Rooms. Unique features provide for careful integration of technology through the use of a low profile raised floor and the integration of hidden large scale presentation technologies. A new elevator was threaded through existing spaces providing for secure and separate access to 2 courtrooms from the cell block in the basement.
