GSA Rolls Out New Mobile Courthouse Design

 

MOBILE, Ala.-- The US General Services Administration (GSA) will host a public preview of the new Mobile federal courthouse design at the Mobile City Hall on June 5th from 9-9:30 am.  The presentation will be led by GSA, along with Hartman-Cox Architects, which is working in partnership with the project’s lead contractor Yates & Sons Company, a Gulf-Coast area construction company.  

“The new Mobile US Courthouse complex will complement the local architecture, help spur economic vitality and provide a federal judicial center worthy of the American people,” said Torre Jessup, GSA Southeast Sunbelt Regional Administrator.  

The $90 million project consists of two phases: 1) Construction of a new U.S. District Courthouse slated for completion in December 2018, followed by 2) Renovation of the John A. Campbell US Courthouse expected to be completed by October 2020.  The project will meet the long term needs  needs of the US Courts in Southern Alabama and consolidate court operations out of leased space into a high-performing, federally-owned campus.  

Project highlights include:
A 25 percent base small business subcontracting goal;
A new 155,600 square foot courthouse to complement the existing Campbell Courthouse, featuring a limestone facade sourced from Russellville, Alabama;
Renovations to the Campbell Courthouse designed to improve security and accessibility, upgrade to energy-efficient building systems, enhance life safety features (including installation of a new, fully-automatic fire suppression system), abate hazardous materials and improve tenant and public spaces; and
Energy Star-rated equipment, high efficiency lighting, water conserving plumbing, solar water heating and low-emitting materials in both facilities.

The community meeting is open to the public and will be held in the Mobile City Hall Auditorium, located at 205 Government Street in Mobile, Alabama.
