Essex County Courthouse

Newark, NJ
Essex County Courthouse

Renovation and historical restoration of the 5-story, 125,000 sf court building designed by Cass Gilbert and constructed between 1902 and 1906. The project involved the complete replacement of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as the addition of new sprinkler systems. Engineering services also included the design of a new chiller plant. Making this project even more challenging were the large murals and a substantial amount of ornamental finishes throughout the building.
