The Jackson County Historic Courthouse was an extensive courtroom rehabilitation completed in 2020. The original Jackson County Courthouse building was first constructed almost 150 years ago. This project offered a unique opportunity to preserve century-old materials while remaining innovative in the construction process and producing a polished yet historically consistent product. The courthouse job entailed an enormous number of challenges due to the historical origin of the building and its importance within the community. Protecting and preserving all the existing woodwork, flooring and archive documents while designing the mechanical systems to accommodate a building constructed in 1879 proved to be very challenging and rewarding.
