  • Kalamazoo County prepares to break ground on $95M justice facility project MLive

    Plans for a new county courthouse in Kalamazoo took a step forward this week as the Kalamazoo County Board of Commissioners voted to authorize contracts be awarded for the nearly $95 million project.

    CSM Group is managing the project. The building was designed by Tower Pinkster/HOK.

    The design for the new court facility will include several unique elements, including a central light well to bring in natural light. The building will also feature a roof specially designed to help regulate solar heat, which county officials say aligns with a larger goal of being good stewards to the environment.

    The facility is 152 thousand square feet and has 128 rooms. Jennifer Manning, the building’s administrator, said it was designed so it doesn’t feel like a nursing home.
