Will County Courthouse
The new Will County Courthouse replaces the existing courthouse with a modern and secure facility that not only gives the city more space and security but also engages the public with a welcoming landscaped plaza. The 10-story limestone rain-screen system designed by Wight & Company and installed by ALL Masonry Construction Group came in on time and under budget; a remarkable feat further exacerbated by the Covid pandemic. This facility features 80,000 square foot of limestone mounted on a 110-foot tall Gridworx aluminum grid system. The tower holds four court floor plates completed with judges’ chambers and jury deliberation suites.
Central to the courthouse design are the stone façade and steel elements, chosen specifically as these materials are native to the Joliet area. The ALL Masonry team installed 110,00-square-feet of limestone, including 80,000 square feet of exterior stone, 20,000 interior stone and 10,000 on the exterior landscape.
