Tulare County needed a new courthouse to serve their growing demand for court services, consolidate court operations, and improve access and services for the southern half of the county.  Located on the former site of Porterville Fairgrounds and the Municipal Ballpark, the new 97,000 sq ft courthouse provides nine courtrooms.  The main entry to the courthouse is through the open air courtyard covered by a canopy.  SGH consulted on the building enclosure design.
