Stevens & Wilkinson, in association with Justice Planning Associates and Goforth-Brown & Associates, was selected to design the new Florence County Judicial Center. Located directly across the street from the existing County Administration Building, the proposed building program will feature seven courtrooms and a large jury assembly area. The spacious entry plaza and landscaped courtyard, reminiscent of a historic courthouse square, will welcome workers and visitors as they enter the facility. Special consideration will be given to separating public traffic from a more restricted security zone, while a judges parking area will be separated from the general public. The three-story structure will delineate the different functions of the county’s court system and various support areas will be easily expanded to accommodate two additional courtrooms.
