Christopher S. Bond United States Courthouse

Jefferson City

Walter P Moore provided structural engineering services for the new United States Courthouse in Jefferson City, Missouri. The $48 million facility consists of courts and administrative function.

The project was designed in metric, including progressive collapse criteria, blast considerations and is located on a site with a Seismic Classification of “D”. The facility is now the home of the U.S. Courts family in Jefferson City, which is part of the 8th Circuit Court in the Western District of Missouri.

This new courthouse provides space for two district courtrooms and two magistrate courtrooms. In addition to the courtrooms and chambers, there is now space for a bankruptcy chamber, the U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Attorney, Probation, and Pretrial Services, as well as space for GSA and local congressional offices.
