Everett McKinley Dirksen U.S. Courthouse Renovation

The Everett McKinley Dirksen Federal Courthouse, located in the central business district of downtown Chicago, is a landmark building originally designed by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The renovation of the courthouse included a complete tenant fit-out of three floors with updated federal courtrooms, judges' chambers, office spaces, conference areas, break areas, and associated support spaces. Work also included asbestos abatement, replacement of heating and cooling perimeter induction units, replacement of 20 courtroom air handling units, and an upgraded emergency generator system. The renovation modernized the building while preserving the value and character of the original architecture.
