More Information 

The Fairfax County Courthouse will receive an award for its architectural design from the City of Fairfax Community Appearance Committee on Feb. 24, at 7 p.m., City Council Room, City Hall Annex, 10455 Armstrong Street, Fairfax. The county courthouse is one of only six award recipients. The building was lauded for its use of a brick façade, entrance arcade, brick landscape columns and pergola.

The 316,000-square-foot courthouse facility, which opened in February 2008, is part of the Courthouse Expansion and Renovation Project. When the project is completed, the Circuit, General District and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District courts will be collocated.

The new building design allows for enhanced public and occupant services.  Benefits include:  additional courtrooms and public spaces to serve the county’s population growth and the corresponding increase in court cases; expanded space to expeditiously accommodate court functions, such as mediation and conciliation programs; advanced courtroom technology tomeet current and future needs; building and site security enhancements; electronic “wayfinder” signs listing cases and courtrooms; and consolidation of court functions for ease of public use.
