The three-story, 30,000 sf Rutland District and Family Courthouse combines traditional exterior appearance with state-of-the-art concepts of spatial organization and traffic flow inside the building. The design provides greater security and privacy for police, attorneys, judges, prisoners and the public. The courtrooms in the facility feature wooden fixtures made of Quartersawn red oak including the judge’s benches, the jury boxes and wainscot panels. Indigenous materials used on the exterior such as slate, marble, granite and brick proudly express Vermont’s special character, and were all fabricated in the State.
