Scope of Work: Professional Systems Engineering, LLC iprovided design/consulting services for courtroom technolgy, security, holding/detention control systems, courts security and building communications technology systems.
The Kent County Courthouse complex addition includes new court spaces and renovated judicial support spaces at the existing courthouse complex. The existing courthouse will have renovations to three (one ceremonial and two courts) existing courtrooms. The renovations and additions at the courthouse will be in two phases. Total space includes 120,000 SF of new and 40,000 SF of renovated courts space in the historic district.
The design of Kent County’s court systems feature a modular design concept. All courtrooms and hearing rooms include the infrastructure and equipment required to support minimal functions. Networked A/V control systems provide a flexible environment where devices for advanced features such as video annotation, video conferencing, and teleconferencing will be provided on portable carts. This approach allows the Courts to share equipment between court rooms on an as needed basis. This also allows the court to expand the number of advanced electronic court rooms as the funding become available without incurring costly renovation fees.
