Judicial Council of California, Modesto Courthouse, Modesto, CA
The Superior Court of Stanislaus County provides services to county residents at the Modesto Courthouse and Hall of Records, multiple facilities in downtown Modesto, and two single-courtroom facilities in outlying towns. The new 308,900 SF courthouse will address deficiencies in the existing facilities and will consolidate them into a single, full-service location. The project will enable the court to increase efficiency by retiring leases and centralizing operations. It will also improve security by providing enhanced entrance screening, separate hallways for the public, staff, and in-custody defendants, and properly sized holding areas for in-custody defendants.
MGAC began by verifying the project budget, and determining an estimate for hard construction costs using the building program. Our team has provided continuous estimating and cost management services throughout design.
