Seattle Justice Center Courthouse Features

Access & Convenience | Environmental Performance & Sustainability | Security

Access & Convenience
Moving into to the Seattle Justice Center Map Image has allowed the Court to provide many new amenities desirable in a modern day courthouse including: attorney client interview booths in the prisoner holding areas and on courtroom floors, a quick payment window near the front entrance to avoid security screening, a large customer lobby with seating, a community resource center, a children's waiting room for children of defendants and witnesses, attorney workrooms for both defense and prosecution attorneys, jury deliberation rooms, and an interpreter waiting room.

Environmental Performance & Sustainability
The Seattle Justice Center building project has applied for a Silver rating using the LEED Green Building Rating System, developed by the US Green Building Council Link outside of the City of Seattle web. The building design incorporates a number of energy and resource efficient features including: a thermal buffer wall on the facade of the building used to heat and cool the building, recycled materials that were used in the construction of the building, a rainwater retention storage tank to reuse runoff, motion sensors to control lighting in offices, and a roof planted with vegetation to improve insulation, reduce rainwater runoff and pollution.
