Nye County�s new $4.7-million Pahrump Justice Facility was designed by JVC Architects.

Construction has begun on renovations and additions to the Pahrump Justice Facility at 1520 E. Basin Road in Pahrump, Nev.

Nye County contracted JVC Architects to design the Pahrump Justice Facility’s building upgrades. As well as a 4,000-sq-ft renovation for the district attorney and clerk’s office, JVC is designing three separate additions – 12,000-sq-ft justice court, which includes a lobby, courtrooms and administration office; 5,000-sq-ft sheriff’s office; and 1,400-sq-ft district court. JVC designed the high-security additions to blend into the existing building’s surroundings.

B & H Construction is serving as the general contractor. Construction of the $4.7-million project is scheduled to be complete in spring 2010.
