The Citrus County Judicial Center consists of a 46,000 square foot addition to the existing courthouse, designed to accommodate all functions of the judicial process, including the Clerk of the Court, and security areas for the Sheriff’s Office. ADG designed all phases of the project. The first phase was the addition, designed to provide modern courts facilities – jury areas, Judges Chambers, temporary holding and Courtrooms. Upon completion of the Phase one improvements, the existing building was renovated to provide space for the Clerk of the Courts and all County Constitutional Offices.
The new Judicial Center incorporates five courtrooms in addition to several mediation and hearing spaces. It provides innovative systems technology in order to improve functional characteristics and to provide spatial flexibility; including such elements as video conferencing for hearings, data imaging, courtroom technology (computer, video, imaging evidence presentation etc.) and similar elements.
