Description Of Site

In the spring of 1994 Security By Design began work at the U.S. Courthouse, 312 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, California with HNTB Architects - Los Angeles.

This modernization/ historical preservation project involved the renovation of approximately 32,000 square feet on the 8th and 9th floors. It included upgrading four existing courtrooms along with two existing chambers and realigning the remaining areas on these floors to provide six new courtrooms, eight new chambers, and support spaces consisting of jury rooms, and judges' conference rooms.

Security By Design Involvement

This project included the Design Development for the Security Plan and Systems, and included biddable specifications with appropriate drawings, bid review, and construction support services.

The project included magistrate judges' courtrooms, corresponding magistrate judges' chamber suites, four courtroom-holding cells, adjacent spaces with public accessibility, and various spaces associated with basic building core facilities.

Of Special Interest

The integration of several different criteria of the security systems which included CCTV, intercom, card access control, silent duress alarm, remote door unlocking, walk through metal detection, and tamper switches.

The communications among devices use a wide variety of methods and media, including twisted-pair, coax, public telephone networks, fiber optics, and laser.

The $25,000,000 project was completed in 1996.
