New Greenville U.S. Courthouse
New Greenville U.S. District Courthouse
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 complex 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.
The project is currently in the design phase, which began Sep. 2016. The design completion/construction document phase of the project is approximately 90 percent complete.
In Dec. 2018, GSA executed a contract option for construction phase services and issued a limited Notice to proceed. The construction contractor will begin to mobilize on March 4, 2019.
The architect/engineer submitted the balance of the 100 percent construction documents and specifications in Feb. 2019.
GSA is currently planning a groundbreaking ceremony for the new courthouse, tentatively scheduled to take place in April 2019.
