State of Michigan Hall of Justice

Overview

The program for the $88 million Hall of Justice includes a 280,000 SF six-story landmark building to house the Michigan Supreme Court, the Michigan Court of Appeals, and the state court administrative office. The project also includes 2 two-story underground-parking structures, each accommodating 230 vehicles.

To get construction of the facility started quickly, PMA developed a “conditional lump-sum” delivery methodology, which took hard money bids on incomplete design documents. PMA drafted procurement documents and assisted in interviewing and selecting the construction manager.

PMA services on this project were also expanded to include schedule reviews and change order assistance during construction. Additionally, PMA developed and maintained a public Web site that allowed state residents to watch ongoing construction via a Web camera.
