The Mobile courthouse project will meet the long-term needs of the U.S. Courts in southern Alabama and consolidate court operations out of leased space into a secure, high-performing, federally-owned campus that saves $805,135 in annual lease payments. Project highlights include:
A new 155,600 square foot courthouse with 6 courtrooms and 9 chambers. The courthouse will feature a limestone facade sourced from Russellville, Alabama;
Renovations to the Campbell Courthouse designed to improve security and accessibility, upgrade to energy-efficient building systems, enhance life safety features (including installation of a new fire suppression system), abate hazardous materials and improve tenant and public spaces;
Energy Star-rated equipment, high efficiency lighting, water conserving plumbing, solar-powered water heatingsystems, and low-emitting materials in both facilities;
Sustainable designs projected to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environment Design(LEED) Gold certification standards; and
A $15 million small business goal.
Once constructed, the new courthouse will house the U.S. District Court, U.S. Magistrate Court, U.S. District Clerk of Court and U.S. Marshals Service. The renovated Campbell Courthouse will accommodate the U.S. Court of Appeals, U.S. District Court, U.S. District Clerk of Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Clerk of Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Administrator, U.S. Probation, Federal Public Defender’s Office, U.S. Marshals Service, a Congressional Office, and GSA.
