Project Description: A design build contract for structural, architectural, and aesthetic upgrades to the 1920s-era Hall of Justice building. L.A.’s former county jail, the Hall of Justice was closed after it was damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The Los Angeles Sherriff’s Department and members of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s staff, both former tenants of the building, will occupy the new space.

The 335,000 square-foot Hall of Justice features seismic upgrades, 308,000 square feet of office space, new interior shear walls and drag beams, and new MEP systems that tie into the building’s existing central plant. Additional renovations include seismic reinforcement, adding a museum area and kitchen, and removing two floors of former jail cells to create room for office space. Read More…
