Facilities planning

A functional and safe courthouse, equipped with the latest technology and equipment, is indispensable to the efficient operation of a court. Courts that have struggled to deal with constant court expansions and aging or unsatisfactory facilities need a reliable means of determining what resources will be needed in the future and what alternatives are available to secure those resources.
