Location: Kalamazoo, MI, 49048 (Map)
Size: 85,000 SF
Architect: Tower Pinkster

The new 85,000 square foot Gull Road Criminal Justice Facility (GRCJF) on Gull Road was completed in January 2016. The three story building features hearing rooms and courtrooms, court clerk and Friend of the Court offices, county prosecutor offices, as well as judges chambers, and holding rooms.

The stunning glass front elevation is made with over 400 panes of glass and the building interior features extensive casework, porcelain tile and carpet flooring. The Court House is equipped with state of the art security, including CCTV, card access, intercoms and 2 way communication systems. It is connected to the Juvenile Detention Center with an enclosed walkway for easy access.

Due to the steeply graded site, AVB used cast-in-place concrete and gravel pier sub-grade improvements to ensure the building was firmly in place. The GRCJF is also energy efficient. It features LED lighting equipped with occupancy sensors and timers to reduce energy consumption, high-efficiency HVAC systems and 990,000 pounds of recycled content asphalt.
