A key landmark in the Rochester Government Center, the 1960s-era Monroe County Courthouse encompasses 350,000 square feet on a prominent downtown site. The existing courthouse was overcrowded, lacking basic security features, and inefficient in space and staff utilization.
Working with Ricci & Associates, a justice planning specialist firm based in New York City, our work was organized in four phases: Space Needs Projections, Operations Analysis, Options and Implementation. The findings of the Analysis phase were packaged together with the Space Needs Projections to create a series of strategic options.
The implementation resulted in a courthouse with improved safety, greater staff efficiency and more effective space utilization, while enhancing the dignity and stature of the courthouse.
