114,000 sf

Project Features
  • Space allocation plan
  • Consolidation of storage spaces
  • Three floors
  • Future reconfiguration flexibility

Currently, the District Attorney and District Clerk has over 450,000 court file boxes stored in nine buildings, making the search and retrieval of files very inefficient and cumbersome.

The project goal is to consolidate all the file storage into a central location and at the same time, continue the imaging process to have — at some point — a complete electronic file database.


Kirksey was hired to program current space requirements and design a space allocation plan with the flexibility to reduce the file storage area and convert them to future office spaces for the county. The space consists of three floors and a total of 114,400 sf. Interior plans included reconfiguration of the space to add stairwells for fire exits while keeping county records and documents properly stored.
