WASHINGTON, DC-The expansion and renovation of the H. Carl Moultrie Courthouse has taken a big leap forward with the recent selection of Gensler from among six other design firms to serve as the project architect and engineer. The US General Services Administration put out a call for proposals last year, with a deadline of January 10 this year.

Gensler joins a team led by Gruzen Samton LLP, which is on board as master planner for the project; which will include the addition of nearly 93,000 sf of space to the existing 654,000-sf facility. Construction could cost as much as $50 million.

Located at 500 Indiana Ave., the Moultrie Courthouse, along with the Metropolitan Police Department Headquarters, occupies an entire city block at Judiciary Square. Renovation of the courthouse will include a 79,000-sf addition to the Family Court portion of the building, and a 13,900-sf supplement to the main entrance in the form of a pavilion.

These upgrades and additions represent just one component of a larger plan to refurbish the Judiciary Square campus. Gruzen Samton is not only overseeing the Moultrie project but is also serving as the master planner for the Judiciary Square courts in general.

“We’ve developed a plan for the facilities that encompasses the renovation of the Old Courthouse, the additions to the Moultrie Courthouse and the creation of a new Family Courthouse,” Gruzen Samton LLP principal Mike Kazan explains to GlobeSt.com. “Those things precipitated the need to look at the whole project.” The “whole project” is scheduled to reach full completion in 2006.
