The new courthouse will combine Provo District, Provo Juvenile, and Orem Juvenile Courts as well as the Guardian ad Litem office. The eight-story building will have 18 courtrooms (16 complete, 2 shelled) with potential future expansion of six additional courtrooms. Spaces include holding cells, prisoner transport, lobby/waiting areas, public services, sally ports, integrated security, court staff, judicial office support, and administrative areas.
This 911 Dispatch Center serves 19 municipalities as well as unincorporated areas throughout Utah County. The secure-access facility includes administrative offices, flexible training spaces, a CAD training lab, 23 dispatch stations, secure IT and radio communications, and an 80-foot communications tower.
The new Provo Power Building replaces the old power plant built in 1939. The project included demolition of two smokestacks, a power generation building, as well as the administrative, warehouse and shop buildings. The smokestacks were an iconic landmark in Utah County and many of its historical details were included in the new building design.
Located behind the existing Frank E. Moss Courthouse, the new district courthouse rests on a raised landscaped plaza. The building features nine district and five magistrate courtrooms, ceremonial courtrooms, 11 district and five magistrate judges’ chambers, jury assembly suite, U.S. attorney suite, and probation pretrial offices.
The five-story building features large floor-to-ceiling windows, state-of-the-art security systems, new digital audio equipment, separation areas for public and in-custody defendants, 20 holding cells, and six courtrooms. With shelled space for two additional courtrooms, the facility was designed with an eye toward future expansion.
This two-story office building is built to serve and accommodate the growing population of the southwest area of Salt Lake County. The structure is located on county property next to a courthouse.
For more than three decades, Salt Lake County officials sought funding for this project and location. As hoped by former District Attorney David Yocom, the home for county attorneys is now adjacent to the downtown Matheson Courthouse.
