Roman L. Hruska Federal Courthouse
This project contained twelve courtrooms for federal, civil and criminal purposes. One appeals court is also included. Further, this 350,000 square foot facility houses the U.S. Courts, Probation Office, Pre-Trial Services, U.S. Attorney, U.S. Marshall and Federal Public Defender, in addition to other miscellaneous federal agencies.
ACSI was engaged to provide all project low-voltage systems planning and engineering services to the project architect. Included were systems for life-safety, communications and security purposes. Security systems included perimeter security for GSA-FPS, entry screening, card access, CCTV surveillance, inmate door monitoring and control, and courtroom security for the U.S. Marshall’s Office. Communications system needs were defined as voice and data, courtroom sound reinforcement, judge/jury signaling, electronic court reporting, and ADA required assistance systems. The facility fire alarm system followed the latest federal court standards which ACSI assisted the GSA in initially developing.
