London Federal Courthouse

General Services Administration London Federal Courthouse Renovation

London, KY


  • Assignment: General Contractor
  • Architect: CMW, Inc.


This facility was constructed to provide the GSA with a new facility featuring updated MEP, security and data systems necessary to support business operations. It is an 89,000 sf, four-story structural steel frame courthouse; it houses two District Courtrooms and a Magistrate Courtroom, all associated Judge’s Chambers and Jury Deliberation Suites. It also includes space for Court Clerk’s Offices, U.S. Marshal Services, Grand Jury Site, Probation Offices and a law library.


  • Project was constructed behind the existing federal courthouse, which was built in 1910 and is included on the historical register.
  • Project was completed three months ahead of schedule. Messer is the first company nationally to turn over a GSA courthouse project earlier than the originally scheduled occupation date.
  • Wide range of input from various entities involved in construction and building operation.
  • U.S. District Court, U.S. Marshal Services, and General Services Administration (GSA) each submitted their own security, technology, communication, electric, and interior finish requirements.
