Programming, master planning and design services were provided for the South County court facility, which will serve the residents of South Orange County. The new 207,000 SF courthouse facility, located on a 28-acre site in Laguna Niguel, includes 14 new courtrooms, judicial suites, agency offices, sub-grade judicial parking and holding area. The project includes alterations to the existing four-court courthouse to integrate it to the new facility.
The basement level was designed with holding facilities for 120 inmates and Orange County Sheriff's Department administrative and support areas. The design provides a separate secure inmate circulation system between the sallyport bus entry, holding cells and criminal courtrooms. This project designed in association with the DLR Group.
