07,06.21 Courthouse Construction
On Thursday, June 21st, DARling Dames Red Hats were offered a tour of the Fairfax County Courthouse construction site by project manager Ellen vanHully-Bronson.

Before the tour the Redhats lunched at the Courtside Thai restaurant in Fairfax at 3981 Chain Bridge Road 22030.

Parts of the courthouse were complete with carpet and finishes. Other areas were very much still a construction site. When completed the almost $100 million 316,000-square-foot expansion will more than double the size of the existing Jennings Judicial Center. The new courthouse is a five-story reinforced concrete-framed structure surrounded by a serpentine Jeffersonian brick wall. There are fourteen fitted-out courtrooms and three shells of courtrooms for future expansion, fourteen elevators, larger holding cells, a new law library, a beautiful courtyard and a state of the art security system.
