Jefferson Parish 24th Judicial District Court

Gretna, LA

Sizeler Thompson Brown Architects led the renovation design of the Jefferson Parish 24th Judicial District Courthouse which includes 16 new courtrooms with judges' chambers and support spaces; new offices and Jury Pool Room for the Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court; and prisoner holding area for the Sheriff's Department. Other improvements include the design of new public spaces, building code and life safety upgrades, and a new roof. Included as part of the $17.5 million, 110,000 SF courthouse project was the design of court-day holding cells for Parish prisoners with toilet facilities and a control/guard system. Adjacent to the cells are two attorney/client counseling area rooms along with a separate elevator to transport the prisoners.
