Newport News Federal Courthouse - Newport News, Va.
The Newport News Federal Courthouse is a 35,000-square-foot, LEED® Silver certified facility. The interior structural, security and utility work included the construction of courtrooms, jury rooms, judges' chambers, office areas for administrative and security personnel, and a two-story lobby with sitting areas and restrooms.
The external structure is composed of brick and pre-cast concrete. Large windows were set into a pre-cast grid and cover most of the front of the building. A security perimeter was established 50 feet from the building on all sides and encloses a fully-landscaped urban park.
