State of VermontLamoille County Courthouse Expansion & Renovation
Project At A Glance
The historic Lamoille County Courthouse was modernized and renovated, expanding the building and addressing accessibility and security concerns. The original exterior brick facade was preserved, while the new 12,000 sf addition was carefully blended into the existing structure with brick and copper elements including the roofs.
The south addition includes a new sally port, detention cells, and sheriff’s office, a hearing room, law clerk’s office, deliberation rooms and judge’s chambers. The east addition serves as the administrative and management office space with the lower level dedicated to mechanical equipment.
In the original structure, Engelberth updated the ductwork for central air conditioning in the courtroom, and raised all of the stair railings in a way that preserved their historical character while meeting OSHA requirements. New windows were installed and transom windows refurbished. A new handicap ramp and sidewalks were also constructed.
