TSK and Michael Baker developed a new holding and processing department along with legal counsel offices as part of a renovation in the PJKK Federal Building and Courthouse. This 860,000 SF facility sits on an 8-acre site and consists of a five-story courthouse and nine-story federal building with one level below grade and connected by a second-floor bridge. Our design team provided on-site investigations to analyze the existing conditions and create as-built drawings in order for our team to incorporate existing building elements into our initial concept designs with the new program requirements.


The 11,070 SF ERO Suite’s program included reception and waiting areas, offices, conference rooms, detention processing, holding areas, fitness training room, officer lockers, and support spaces. The critical design issues for the ERO renovation were security and control of visitors and violators to and through tenant spaces. Detainees will be brought up from a basement level to the 4th floor detention area, so public safety in the corridors was discussed intimately for the best solution economically feasible.

The OPLA Suite is a 4,654 SF tenant improvement on the 7th floor of the building which provides reception and waiting areas, executive leadership and staff offices, conference rooms, law library, and secure file storage. This renovation also accounts for the security cameras on the 9th floor detaining transition room for court appearances and is tied back into the MDF security room within the OPLA suite, which is ultimately tied into the 4th floor ERO security room.
