Sundt Construction Completes John M. Roll U.S. Courthouse in Yuma, Ariz.

 |  Press Release

YUMA, Ariz. (July 12, 2013) – Sundt Construction, Inc. has completed construction of the $25 million John M. Roll United States Courthouse in downtown Yuma.

The landmark federal courthouse construction project replaces an outdated facility and pays tribute to its namesake, Justice John M. Roll, a federal judge who was killed in the January 2011 attack on former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson. Sundt served as the design-build contractor on the project.

The two-story, 57,000-square-foot building includes two courtrooms, judges’ chambers, detention cells and administrative areas for the federal courts and the U.S. Marshals Service. A clean, modern design emphasizes sustainability and sets the stage for pending LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.  Locally sourced sandstone and masonry, installed by Sundt’s own crews, cover the building’s exterior, while “living walls” of vines planted on steel trellises shade windows. In the entry way, a 10,000-square-foot canopy made of photovoltaic panels supplies shade while generating up to one quarter of the building’s electrical needs.
