The County of Monmouth retained DMR to complete renovations, alterations and a 3,400 SF addition to the Monmouth County Courthouse in order to modernize and refurbish the building, while also bringing it up to ADA code.
The addition will serve as a new security vestibule and accommodate for critical security updates, while serving as the lone entryway for all employees and visitors to the building. The design includes easy sightlines, an intuitive and efficient queuing system, ample space for modern equipment including metal detectors and x-ray machines, and technological upgrades with access to restricted areas and video monitoring systems, all of which will keep those who work inside the building, and the hundreds who visit daily, safe. The design blends into the existing architecture and character of the building, which was originally built in 1954 and is an important part of the County’s history.
The project scope also includes 113 restrooms, as well as the removal or reconstruction of exterior stairs, ramps, and platforms.
