U.S. Courthouse San Antonio

Design-build services for a new 245,000 sq ft U.S. Courthouse. The building features eight courtrooms, 13 judges’ chambers, and spaces for the U.S. Courts, U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Attorneys, and other tenant agencies. The three-story conventional steel frame structure is clad in natural stone, terra cotta, architectural metal panels, and glass curtainwall and is designed to meet the required blast loads. The building boasts robust physical security and electronic security systems as needed to support public safety and prisoner movement. A focal point of the courthouse is the three-story central atrium with terrazzo flooring, wood wall paneling, and abundant natural light. The urban site covers 6.3 acres in downtown San Antonio and provides secured surface parking for 81 vehicles.

"Brasfield & Gorrie has provided a very strong management team and approach for the project. Their expertise in both Government contracts…is a direct benefit to the Government and the project team. This is particularly true in their design phase management approach and overlapping fast-track construction phase performance of the work. The contractor also has a partnering-focused problem-solving and solutions-based approach in working with the government's CMA and design architect."

"To say that I was satisfied with the process and eventual product would be a sincere understatement. The team was highly responsive and treated every challenge in a professional manner. Due to the skill and dedication of the exceedingly qualified members of the delivery team, the San Antonio Courthouse has become an outstanding example of a design-build acquisition process as well as a stellar addition to the GSA Region 7 inventory. The project met all cost goals, due in large part to the construction team. As for the schedule, not only did the project meet the goal, but it was also delivered a month ahead of schedule, to the delight of the US Courts. In closing, the project was an enormous success due not only to the use of the design-build delivery method but to Brasfield & Gorrie's expert navigation of the acquisition strategy."
