After a multi-year Feasibility Study with the Madison County Judge Executive, integrity/Architecture was contracted to provide design services for the addition and renovation of the historic Madison County Courthouse. i/A worked with the County, the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), and the judicial staff to determine the proposed program, scope and budget of the renovation project.

The primary objective is to renovate and modernize the historic facility and, more importantly, to address significant ongoing safety and accessibility concerns. The design for the new Madison County Courthouse began with critical functional upgrades, including secure entry for both staff and inmates and new secure holding facilities. A second courtroom will occupy the ground floor space below the existing second-floor courtroom, allowing county officials to meet the ever-increasing demand in court proceedings.

The entire interior of the building will be gutted and renovated to bring the facility up to modern accessibility, fire protection, and code-compliance standards. The exterior will be carefully restored, with all new lighting systems.

Our team developed a multi-phase/multi-building renovation plan and fast-tracked construction schedule to relocate all Madison County court functions and departments into temporary and/or new spaces. In March of 2020, the project was put on hold as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but has since resumed and is approaching the final stages of design.
