LOCATION: CHEYENNE, WY
YEAR COMPLETED: 2020
Completed fall of 2020, the new Judge Joseph M. Carey Cheyenne City Center Building (26,240 sqft) showcases a two stories of red brick, highlighted by white stone bands. On top, a large cornice that pays homage to the previous structure’s history.
This multi-faceted project began in 2017, when our team designed the temporary relocation of the courts within the existing City Municipal Building. We then assisted the City of Cheyenne in evaluating potential location options for the future court building, and worked directly with City representatives on the project team to present site evaluations and estimated construction costs to City Council for review.
In January 2018, the Council voted unanimously that the new Municipal Court building would be built on the northwest corner of Carey Avenue and West 17th Street in downtown Cheyenne. It was a multi-layered process to create the design of the Court in this new location, one that included fully vetting several varying functional aspects, stakeholder needs, security considerations, and city requirements, all while maintaining budget restraints.
