New Greenville U.S. Courthouse

New Greenville SC US Courthouse rendering

In 2016, GSA announced authorization from Congress for several courthouse projects in the Southeast Sunbelt Region. The funding authorization made way for the GSA to proceed with design and construction of a new U.S. Courthouse to meet the federal judiciary’s current and long-term housing needs in Greenville, SC. The approximately 193,000 gross square foot courthouse will include seven courtrooms and nine chambers to accommodate nine judges (3 active District Judges, 3 Senior Judges, 1 visiting District Judge and 2 Magistrate Judges). Other court related tenants will include the U.S. Probation, Federal Public Defender and the U.S. Department of Justice (U.S. Marshals Service and Office of the U.S. Attorney). The new courthouse will also include a roof penthouse and 70 secured indoor parking spaces for staff. The courthouse will be built on what is currently a parking lot in downtown Greenville at the southeast corner of the intersection of East North Street and North Spring Street. The site size is approximately 2 acres.

The Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) contract for Greenville, SC was awarded on September 25, 2017 to Brasfield & Gorrie, General Contractors.
