BHA performed the study to determine the final conceptual design and provided design and construction administration services for the final build-out of the York County Judicial Center by completing the fifth-floor courtrooms and ancillary spaces. Two large multipurpose rooms provide flexibility for staff training and jury duty gathering spaces. The design of eight non-jury courtrooms primarily serves civil cases.
New Judges’ Chambers offer a better use of space, organized assistant area, group work spaces, improved connectivity to courtrooms, and potential expansion of the President Judge’s chambers.
The general layout was improved upon with the concentric levels of security from the public access atrium lobby outward to the secure transport elevators and hallways, through the courtrooms and to the Judges’ Chambers and ancillary spaces.
