Johnson Carlier, an Arizona-based general contractor, recently completed construction of the Mohave County Superior Court in downtown Kingman, AZ., a four-story, state-of-the-art facility that will serve citizens of the County for decades to come.

The new 66,000-square-foot Superior Court building is located east of the existing courthouse, which was built in 1915. The two courthouses are now connected by an enclosed corridor, preserving the history and integrity of the existing courthouse by making it part of a new complex that will offer better services, security, access, and modern technology to all visitors.

Johnson Carlier began construction of the new $20 million facility in 2019. At completion, more than one million pounds of structural steel and more than 128K pounds of metal deck were used in the construction process. Other notable highlights from the project include approximately 28K pieces of main structural members and parts, combined for nearly 35K linear feet of material.

“This is a signature project for Johnson Carlier because of its place in the Kingman community and the many lives it will impact over time,” said Tom Harrison, senior vice president and managing director, Johnson Carlier. “It’s been an honor to work on this project because of the opportunity to blend history and significance with modern enhancements and features.”

According to Presiding Superior Court Judge Charles Gurtler, the new state-of-the-art courthouse solves several challenges concerning security, technology, and future needs and growth. In an effort to promote security and public safety the workspace and flow areas were designed so that the inmates would remain separated from the staff and the general public. 

Johnson Carlier, the oldest Arizona-based general contractor, is an independently managed part of the Big-D family of companies.
