This design-build courthouse was a high-profile, regionally significant project that garnered tremendous attention during its procurement. PRESWERX worked with the architect and contractor, together whom formed the design-build joint venture to pursue the project. The courthouse itself was a $50M+ project, and was planned to replace what had been a long-time, dilapidated facility, desperately in need of replacement. The previous courthouse had become functionally obsolete, and the owner sought to replace it with a state-of-the-art courthouse that would serve the court system for the next 50, 60 or 70-plus years.
This was done so that key themes that were agreed-upon between the architect and contractor, could be woven into the proposal book submission, and carried forward into the presentation. PRESWERX and its design-build client knew going into the presentation, that the audience for this particular presentation, would be the actual elected county commissioners. Moreover, that their interests in seeing this facility as nothing short of a benchmarking-setting courthouse, was of paramount importance.
