OPN Celebrates the Opening of New United States Courthouse

OPN Architects and William Rawn Associates celebrated the opening of the new U.S. Courthouse in Cedar Rapids. Over a decade in the making, the Courthouse opened its doors to the public on November 6, 2012 on-time and on-budget — a rarity for GSA projects of this scale. As the Architect of Record, OPN was responsible for managing all aspects of this large, complex, technologically-advanced project, including coordinating a team of 15 consultants from across the country. Approximately 50% of the 287,600 sf building is high-performance multi-tenant office space housing 19 governmental agencies. The building is designed with access floor, high-performance, blast-resistant glazing, solar panels, a rain-water collection system, and a green roof. It is on track to receive LEED Gold Certification.
