CITY OF FLAGSTAFF MUNICIPAL COURT FACILITY
The new Flagstaff Courts Facility replaces a pair of obsolete, functionally inadequate buildings in downtown Flagstaff. The building serves as a catalyst for development on the northern edge of the historic downtown and will create a fitting new civic symbol for the courts and the city. The project kicked off with the demolition of the existing City-owned building on the site. The program of just over 40,000 GSF had to be accommodated on a small site of 27,440 SF along with secure staff parking for 19 cars and a drive-thru sallyport. This was achieved in a three-story structure that had to comply with very rigid zoning regulations that required multiple and frequent plane changes for the exterior facades and varying building height changes. The compact organization, efficient layout and judicious uses of finishes particularly for the public areas and courtrooms helped the project effectively deal with a tight construction budget. Sustainability is also very important to the City and the new facility is designed to meet Green Globes (3 Globes).
