PLJBD was selected to design the renovation of the Municipal Building into a Justice Center.
Responsibilities included scheduling meetings with the Police Department, Fire Department, Prosecuting Attorney’s office, and Courts Department to determine their space needs.
PLJBD developed a schedule of construction phases that allowed the departments to remain in the building during construction.
The former Council Chamber was converted into a courtroom that accommodates over 150 people.
A memorial and display was built for the Police Department.
A storm/fire resistant evidence building was added to provide a secure environment to store crucial evidence.
