Construction of a new 33,400ft² federal courthouse for California in the US will soon start, with the aim of reaching a LEED silver rating.
The $28.5m project is being delivered by the Gilbane Building Company in partnership with NBBJ Architects.
The scheme will house the US magistrate court, the US marshals service and probation and pretrial offices.
The courthouse building is expected to achieve the LEED silver rating for incorporating many energy and water efficient strategies in the design.
The project is funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, according to centralvalleybusinesstimes.com.
