Filling a need.
With an aging, overcrowded courthouse, the decision to construct a new one in Johnson County, Kan., presented an opportunity to address other issues raised by the community and its residents. When complete, the 28-courtroom courthouse will cost much less to maintain than the current building, and it will better separate inmates and criminal defendants from victims, witnesses, jurors, and others in courthouse corridors. Designed with future growth in mind, the courthouse will fill the county's judicial needs for the next 75 years with the ability to add more courtrooms as the need arises.
A team's tunnel vision.
To secure movement of in-custody detainees from Olathe Central Booking to the courthouse, the team designed and installed a tunnel under the city’s main street. The task, though, was no easy one. The team had to avoid damaging existing utilities in the path of the tunnel, work around city events to minimize a negative impact on the surrounding community, and built through a harsh winter with several snow storms.
A ceremonial topping out.
Another milestone was reached at the Johnson County Courthouse project site in Johnson County, Kansas. Project team members, partners and city officials gathered for a topping out ceremony to watch the last steel beam be placed on the building's highest structure. The event kicked off with a traditional beam signing and we heard a few words of gratitude from Johnson County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Ed Eilert, JE Dunn Senior Project Manager Ben Vanderau and more. A celebratory BBQ lunch and brief job site tour was held to conclude the event.
