The John. M Roll United States Courthouse, has been named in memory of the judge who worked to make it a reality and who lost his life in the 2011 Tucson shooting that also injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords – Judge John M. Roll. The new federal courthouse will reinterpret and update the classical American courthouse while adapting to the southern Arizona climate by using local sandstone and innovative energy-efficient technologies. The centerpiece of the courthouse will be a large, solar panel canopy that will generate one quarter of the building’s electrical needs while providing shade to employees and visitors. The new complex will house two magistrate courtrooms, judges’ chambers, jury facilities, U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services, District and Bankruptcy Court Services and the U.S. Marshals Service.
We worked concurrently with the design team and Sundt Construction to identify and resolve design issues. In addition to basic MEP commissioning, this project had an additional electrical testing component that falls outside normal electrical commissioning. TMCx handled this in-house with our electrical reliability solution.
