Phil Stout, the Facilities Design and Construction Director for Wake County, takes us on a video tour of the new Wake County Justice center, which is currently under construction in Downtown Raleigh. According to Stout, the building is a whopping $24 Million under budget.
The justice center combines contemporary neo-Gothic architectural design elements with 21st technology to adapt to a rapidly increasing instant-media society. The center's design also address a range of post-9/11 security concerns. To answer environmental calling cards, the building will employ energy efficiency measures and attempt basic LEED Certification. See below for the video with a full tour of the building during its construction.
