Hensel Phelps proudly participated in the groundbreaking of the East County Hall of Justice on September 17, 2014 in Dublin, CA alongside Alameda County officials, Judges and local dignitaries. The $112 million, 196,000 SF project consists of a five-story Courthouse building and a two-story County Building connected by a shared lobby and security screening area. Thirteen criminal courtrooms and associated support spaces will be housed in the Courthouse building while the County building will provide space for the Public Defender, District Attorney and Probation Department. The project is a collaboration by the Administrative Office of the Courts and Alameda County to replace the existing facility in Pleasanton, CA. Fentress Architects is developing the final design and the project is scheduled to be completed in early 2017.
