Design Achievement - This expansion to the Robert A. Swadell Justice Facility for the City of Henderson provides much needed trial space and growth for the agencies that support the judicial process. DLR Group's design draws upon the contemporary vocabulary of the existing structure and allows it to flourish as the expansion transitions from the regular rhythm of the courtroom module to the more modern office component. This change in the building program is marked by both a change in the exterior detailing and building massing, with a glass-enclosed stair tower acting as the hinge point between these two components.
Scope Summary – This new 44,000 SF building expansion includes four new courtrooms and five judicial chambers, as well as office space for the clerk of court, city attorney, and court programs. Also part of the project is the design and planning of a three-level parking structure and site planning for approximately 250 spaces of surface parking at the back of the site. This project was completed in association with Carter Burgess. DLR Group was the Design Architect.
