Under a court order by the Virginia Supreme Court, Dickenson County was required to build a new courthouse with a limited budget, very specific design parameters and a tight calendar. County officials took advantage of new legislation which allowed them to utilize a design build project delivery method. They were able to keep this project in the $8 million range while adding back into the project features they wanted, such as a terrazzo floor. The three-story, new construction project has two beautiful court rooms, secured access for judges and prisoners, improved and secure public space for district and circuit court offices, on a significantly improved site with additional parking.
