Project Description

Evo A. DeConcini Federal Courthouse

The Evo A. DeConcini Federal Courthouse, named for a former Arizona superior court judge who was also a former state attorney general, was completed in 2000. MWG provided structural engineering for the 413,000 square foot building designed by Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates and constructed under Leo A. Daly Architects. Built at the edge of the downtown government and financial complex, the courthouse forms a gateway to the desert and the mountains beyond.

A steel building laterally braced by braced frames and supported by spread footings, the structure supports two six-story towers connected by a glass bridge. Building programs include basement parking, 14 courtrooms, a circuit court library, ceremonial proceedings courtroom, jury assembly area, and a cafeteria.
