Franklin County Hall of Justice
The Franklin County Hall of Justice was largely vacated after a new courthouse was constructed in 2011. The county wanted to renovate the ten-story building to create additional space for government operations and support future courthouse expansion. A significant aspect of the renovation including removing and replacing the existing curtain wall system on the fourth through ninth levels. SGH consulted on the curtain wall replacement.

- Investigated the condition of the existing curtain wall and documented the system’s structural configuration
- Analyzed curtain wall options, including improving the existing system, replacing the glazing, or completely replacing the curtain wall system
- Consulted on the new curtain wall’s design, including developing details to integrate the existing mullions with the new system and writing the technical performance specification
- Reviewed curtain wall shop drawing reviews to compare with the project requirements
