Salt Lake City Justice Courts

Salt Lake City need to expand from a single courtroom to five operating courtrooms to meet case load projections. The City desired a central downtown location that could provide the full range of Justice Court Services. JRCA Architects was given the task of renovating an existing downtown office building into a complete courts facility. An addition was required to provide the 22,500 s.f. needed for proper servicing of this five court facility.

The end product is a five courtroom facility which includes an enlarged arraignment court, video arraignment capabilities, secure detainee holding and delivery sallyport, traffic hearing and clerking functions. Upstairs courtrooms take advantage of a skylight daylighting scheme.

The facility serves the following functions:

  • Arraignment Court

  • Video Capabilities

  • Secure Holding Areas

  • Traffic Hearing / Clerking Functions
