In 2015, Charlotte County Courthouse was expanded to provide a more-secure and larger space for its circuit, general district, and juvenile and domestic relations courts and its holding cells. A three-story addition was constructed and a corridor was built to connect the new space to the original 1820s-era Jeffersonian building.
2RW designed MEP/FP engineering systems for the three-story addition and corridor. Features of the MEP/FP design that were unique to the courthouse include:
The addition provides the space needed to house the circuit, general district, and juvenile and domestic relations courtroom and holding cells. A connector allowed the original structure and addition to be accessed from one entry point with security systems to allow for a more secure environment.
