U.S. Courthouse Series: Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. U.S. Courthouse
May 19, 2022
For the past few years, the General Services Administration has been working on new construction, repairs, and alterations to existing courthouse facilities in communities across the country. Ten of these projects are in the Southeast Sunbelt Region.
To showcase these projects as they are completed, we’ll be sharing short videos of each Region 4 project. These videos will include historical information, details on the design and sustainability elements, and information on who will occupy the facility.
In this first installment of the video series, we take a look at the Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. U.S. Courthouse in Greenville, South Carolina.
The new 193,000-square-foot courthouse includes seven courtrooms and nine judge’s chambers. It also provides workspace for the U.S. Marshals Service, Attorneys, Probation and Pretrial and Public Defender offices.
The building’s design features several elements intended to create savings in the building’s water and energy costs and was designed to meet LEED Gold certification. “Thanks to the hard work of our project team, Greenville’s new federal courthouse will cost significantly less to operate and manage while providing our tenant agencies and visitors with a healthier, more productive environment,” said PBS Regional Commissioner Kevin Kerns.
The courthouse also features tile and mosaic panels by artist Joyce Kozloff. The artwork, part of the federal government’s Art in Architecture program, showcases the history of textiles and labor in the Greenville region.
Construction of the $42 million courthouse began in Fall 2019 and was completed in July 2021, on time and on budget.
