Crawford County Judicial Center

Government & Municipal

Crawford County Judicial Center

Meadville, PA

To assist the County, we sent teams of professionals to discuss the needs of each department. We carefully documented all existing spaces and support areas including storage requirements, and then synthesized a new program of desired spaces, adjacencies, and support requirements. Multiple schemes were created for discussion with constituencies, and public presentations were prepared for community input, consensus building and buy-in. Each scheme was conservatively estimated.

The first project initiated through the study and assessment is the new Judicial Center which is currently under construction and entails construction of a four story, 60,000 SF annex to house the Court of Common Pleas and its related functions. The building will include 3 full-size courtrooms and their related offices, as well as office space for the Clerk of Courts, Prothonotary, Sheriff, and District Attorney. Special features include an interior sallyport for secured prisoner transport, central command with complete audio/visual monitoring capabilities, and individual and group holding cells. The overall facility is also intended to have blast and ballistic-rated assemblies where necessary.
