St. Louis County Courts Project

The existing County Courts building, built in the late 1960’s, was reviewed in 2008 by a Blue Ribbon Panel that subsequently determined a need for major upgrades to the crumbling and outdated facility. After years of political debates and voter rejection of funding measures, KCI was selected in September 2013 as the Best Value to construct the renovations and additions. KCI received the highest technical score for the design-build proposal, and is teamed with Fentress Architects as the lead design firm. The project of approximately 380,000 square feet will consolidate the Family Court, including Juvenile Detention, with the Circuit Court into modern, state of the art facilities at the St. Louis County Court Complex located in the City of Clayton. The scope of the project includes a goal of LEED Silver Certification; renovations to the four-story parking garage under the building; improved public wayfinding and circulation; upgrades to mechanical, electrical and security systems; new elevators; and a complete revamping of the security configuration and redesign of the jury assembly rooms.
