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.

SGH performed the following for this project:

  • 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
