JOHN M. ROLL UNITED STATES COURTHOUSE
The U.S. government needed a new courthouse near the southwestern border. The building needed to facilitate a variety of functions for multiple user bases while being energy efficient.
The building includes two courtrooms, U.S. Marshals offices, holding cells, Clerk of Courts, pre-trial, and probation. Sustainable Measures included domestic solar hot water and photovoltaics, and magnetic bearing, high-efficiency chillers. The unique features include design of negative pressure holding areas for tuberculosis control, hazard protection for the mail processing room, and force resistance features integrated into the design of building and grounds.
