Why is an additional Courts building needed?
For more than ten years, Loudoun County has engaged court planning experts to assess the need for additional space based on the continued growth in court caseload and general population in the county. These assessments have provided long-term planning outlooks. The Phase II Expansion of the Courts Complex was completed in 2005 with the completion of the Law Library. In 2008, the county opened two additional courtrooms that were “shelled” during Phase II as a new judgeship and increased caseload required additional space in the building.

The Phase III project has been planned based on projections from an updated Facility Plan and Assessment prepared by Wisnewski Blair & Associates (now HGA) in 2011 that focused on the anticipated growth in court activity in 2015, 2020 and 2025. The Phase III project is planned to achieve the space needs for the Courts for the 2015 projections. A future Phase IV project is planned for the projected 2025 space needs.
