Carroll A. Campbell Jr. U.S. Courthouse

Greenville, SC CH

In fiscal year 2016, Congress authorized funding for the construction of a new U.S. District Courthouse to meet the Federal Judiciary’s current and long-term housing needs in Greenville, South Carolina. Covering roughly two acres, the approximately 193,000-gross-square-foot Carroll A. Campbell Jr. U.S. Courthouse will include seven courtrooms and nine chambers to accommodate nine judges. Once complete, the facility will also provide workspace for the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services System, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and a federal public defender’s office.

Current status

Construction of the $105 million Carroll A. Campbell U.S. Courthouse continues. Workers have nearly finished the installation of the precast panels on the facility’s exterior and atrium—a process which is anticipated to be complete by the end of July 2020. In addition, the contractor has begun installing exterior windows. Testing of the exterior windows for water and air leakage will begin in July 2020. Construction of the mechanical penthouse is also nearing completion, and all rooftop mechanical equipment has been set.

On the new courthouse’s interior, workers have framed walls up to the 6th floor and have begun placing drywall on the 1st and 2nd floors. The installation of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection systems (MEPF) is also underway.
