Washington County Judicial Center
Brandstetter Carroll Inc. provided architectural and engineering services for this 34,493 s.f. Justice Center. The facility includes District, Circuit and Family Court functions, as well as the Office of the Circuit Clerk. The Justice Center is located across the street from the former Courthouse built in 1815. The detailing of the building reflects the historic buildings in downtown Springfield.

A national search was conducted for the artist to sculpt this important community art piece.
