McKinley Architecture and Engineering led the team that provided the Tyler County Commission with architectural and engineering design services for a new Judicial Building.
This project had a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony on August 30, 2022.
The original intention was for the proposed annex to be located directly behind existing courthouse, which is currently an asphalt parking lot; however, the site consists of fill that wasn’t placed, and the addition would take all the courthouse parking. Therefore, we worked with the Commissioners to study other potential sites, and decided to build the facility on Main Street.
Replacing aging and insufficient facilities, the new brick and stone clad facility will primarily house the county magistrate and family courts in new courtrooms for each with space for public officers, staff, public transactions, and in-custody.
McKinley worked with local members of the judicial system, commissioners, law enforcement and State Supreme Court in planning the Secure and modern spaces appointed for the dignified and efficient carriage of justice in 21st century proceedings.
The general contractor effectively coordinated the work on a tight site.
The skilled tradesmen expertly executed the McKinley Teams’ designs of street arcade masonry archways (honoring the aesthetics of the nearby historic courthouse), intricate wood paneling and terrazzo finishes, and efficient MEP systems to name a few.
