Moseley Architects has presented plans for a new courthouse to the city council in Colonial Heights, Virginia, US.
Plans for the $18.1m courthouse building feature a neoclassical design with a Doric portico topped with a cupola on the building front.
The courthouse will be a two-storey building with an area of around 65,000ft² and will include a juvenile and domestic relations courtroom.
The facility will provide office space for court clerks, the commonwealth’s attorney and sheriff, a law library, jury meeting rooms and waiting areas for case participants and the general public.
Construction of the courthouse is expected to begin in early 2012 with completion scheduled for mid 2013.
