In Huntsville, Alabama, Brasfield & Gorrie is the design-build contractor for a new 126,000 sq ft federal courthouse that will house the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Alabama.

Construction Equipment Guide recently reported on the project’s process. “It will be a great improvement to have a courthouse that has adequate room to conduct the duties of the court and serve the public,” said U.S. District Judge Liles Burke. “I am very happy with the architecture of the new United States Courthouse, which will be a very traditional neo-classical building. It will perfectly blend with the historic architecture that’s so prevalent in downtown Huntsville, as well as complement the more modern architecture that’s been constructed over the past 60 years.”

Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Brian Murray said, “This design and construction type is not for everyone … But with a team of highly knowledgeable experts in federal courthouse delivery, the exacting nature of this work is extremely rewarding.”

The courthouse will include five courtrooms, judges’ chambers, space for probation officers and staff, the clerk’s office, and the U.S. Marshals Service.
