Prince Edward County Courthouse
Prince Edward County
Prince Edward County was seeking a multi-phased renovation to address the security, adjacency and overcrowding issues present at the Courthouse. The first phase was to relocate Social Services into office space outside of the Courthouse. This provided the space to begin the renovations and relocation of programs. The second phase was to separate the Combined Courts into Juvenile and General District Court by moving the Juvenile Court to newly renovated space on the first floor. Juvenile Probation and Magistrate was relocated into newly renovated space giving the Sheriff department additional space in their suite. Finally, the Clerk of Courts was relocated into newly renovated space on the first floor.
The third phase was to renovate the Main Circuit Court Room in the historic, original Courthouse constructed in 1890. The fourth phase renovated the 3 story atrium, relocating the stairs and providing better fall protection on each of the floors. The fifth and final phase adds a security vestibule and sally port addition to the building. This increases safety and security for the staff, public and incarcerated.
