District Court improves efficiency through renovations and upgrades

December 27, 2013 Case Study 1 min read
The City of Livonia needed to address its aging District Court to better meet the needs of the court system and community.

The challenge

The City of Livonia engaged Plante Moran Cresa (PMC) to undertake a due diligence assessment and develop a phase schedule for renovations and upgrades to its aging District Court. The City found that handling it caseload was challenging given the courthouse’s space limitations and outdated features.

The solution

At the start of the project, PMC evaluated an array of potential financing models to define the most advantageous project parameters. PMC then began the site selection process, developed appropriate financing strategies, and provided comprehensive space analysis and programming services to maximize workspace efficiency.

Acting as owner’s representative on behalf of the City, PMC assisted in locating a suitable site, procuring design and construction services, and overseeing project planning and project management through its completion.

The benefit

The result of the project is a new 40,000-square-foot City of Livonia District Court that includes the much-needed additional space, a state-of-the-art security system, and IT and technology upgrades throughout.
