Justice Center

Shawnee, KS

McCownGordon was chosen as the design-builder to construct the Shawnee, Kansas, Justice Center, the City’s first LEED Certified building. The project included a fire station, police station, and courthouse. The courthouse portion includes a large courtroom, administration and judge offices, conference rooms, and secure corridors allowing secure transportation of inmates from police to courts. The police station portion consists of a five-bay sally port and booking area with six holding cells, which includes one detox cell. The new construction also includes space for evidence processing, armory, evidence storage, secure drug and money storage, k-9 kennels, physical training, locker rooms, conference rooms, offices, administrative space, and a training room that can be converted into a command center in case of an emergency. 

The success of our Justice Center project was due in large part to the talent and strong character of the staff at McCownGordon. Their project responsibilities were handled promptly, professionally and with integrity.
