The 144,000-square-foot Kings County Courthouse project in Hanford, California has crossed the halfway point and is on track to be complete in December. Sundt’s team is currently installing the exterior skin and performing glazing and interior framing.
When complete, the facility will include 12 courtrooms, a jury assembly room and an underground tunnel connecting the courthouse to the nearby county jail. It will also house a self-help legal center, family court mediation rooms, courtroom holding rooms and attorney interview waiting rooms. A number of sustainable features are expected to help the courthouse construction project earn LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
