Monongalia County

Courthouse - Morgantown, West Virginia 

Type: Renovation

Size: 84,000 sq. ft.

Services: Mechanical, electrical and plumbing


The project included the renovation of the existing three-story courthouse, including five Magistrate courtrooms and four circuit courtrooms.  In addition, a lower level parking and holding cells were renovated. Five elevator systems were also replaced. Originally built in the 1970s, the former Harley O. Staggers Federal Building and regional post office presented a unique and exciting opportunity to serve the growing judicial services of Monongalia County. The program included new space for the County’s Circuit, Magistrate, Family, and Drug Courts, as well as spaces for the Prosecuting Attorney, Adult and Juvenile Probation, Home Confinement and Day Report Center. Comprehensive replacement of the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems was major factors to achieving sustainability targets.
