Addition & Improvements

Saline County Courthouse

In 2011, Berggren Architects was hired by Saline County, a long-standing client of ours, to renovate and restore the Saline County Courthouse. Since 2011, Berggren Architects has addressed many of the courthouse’s issues through the course of multiple projects. These projects included making energy improvements, conducting an elevator study, constructing sidewalks, addressing plumbing and structural problems, conducting a historical survey, and overseeing the design and construction of the courthouse Veteran’s Memorial, completed in 2012.

One of our most notable projects with Saline County was our 2019 Courthouse Addition—a $7.3 million, 5-story project including the design and construction of a second staircase, a new elevator, and accessible restrooms. Fire safety, restoration, and security improvements accounted for a large portion of the construction costs.

Berggren Architects is currently working on a re-pointing project for the courthouse exterior.
