Institutional | WHITING-TURNER CONTRACTING CO. - DURHAM COUNTY JUDICIAL BUILDING

The completed building will be mostly office space, but it will
also contain community meeting spaces and a fitness center on
the fourth floor for county employees. The first level will include
two retail spaces totaling about 6,000 square feet.

Tight Workspace
Whiting-Turner has completed similar projects before, which is
partially what made the company a good fit for the rehabilitation. However, the site does pose a few challenges. The former
judicial building sits on an active downtown block, creating a
tight site with limited space for subcontractors to work.
To mitigate those issues, most materials are kept off site and
only delivered when that part of the project is ready to proceed.
Managing the workflow on such a tight footprint can be difficult,
so Whiting-Turner created a Google Docs planner that tracks
the schedule of deliveries to the site and shared it with the 51
subcontractors involved in the project.

Keeping with its
modern design, the
renovated judicial
building is expected
to achieve LEED Silver certification.
With so many subcontractors involved, it can be difficult to
keep on top of performance and quality. Whiting-Turner holds
weekly meetings with its subcontractors and twice a week holds
huddles where issues can be worked out. Further, the company
frequently conducts walkthroughs of the building with the
architect, O'Brien Atkins Associates, and third-party consultants
to identify issues that need rectifying.
The final building promises to be a fitting and modern space
for government business. The exterior will be clad in glass, allowing for abundant natural light to seep into offices. Airfoils on the
curtainwall and metal panels will give the structure a striking
look without creating an impression of extravagance. Within the
building, the offices and hallways will feature mostly paint with
touches of stone, tiles and wood. Keeping with that modern design, the building is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification
for energy efficiency.
The county's end-goal is to create a hub of operations in downtown Durham. The former judicial building sits across the street
from the main county offices and will act as a sort of connector
with the Durham County Board of Elections. Its placement in the
larger Durham County government campus will also result in a
new name for the building: Administration Building II.
