Client: Rensselaer County, New York
Project Type: Adaptive Use; New Design in Historic Context
The renovation of the historic county jail for use as the family court center required the removal of the existing jail cell infrastructure. Three levels of new concrete floor structure were inserted along with the construction of a new entry pavilion. The Sheriff’s house was restored to provide space for the family court offices and a day care room. The main building housed two new courtrooms, two large hearing rooms, and met all of the requirements of the Office of Court Administration for ancillary spaces.
