Lincoln County Courthouse

The historic Lincoln County Courthouse was built in 1915. Although it had been dutifully maintained, 80 years of weather and constant use had taken its toll. In 1993, the decision was made to refurbish it.

Many problems had to be resolved in the renovation of this facility. They included roof leaks, inadequate HVAC and electrical systems, as well as settlement issues and as was normally the case, the courtroom was located on the second floor without handicap access.

 

The overall approach was one of prudent restoration of the building attempting to keep the original design intact while introducing barrier free design throughout the facility.

The renovation was completed under a single contract. The owner maintained partial occupancy of the building during the entire construction process.
