Construction is complete on the Mohave County Superior Court in Kingman, Ariz. The four-story, 66,000-sq-ft building, built by Arizona’s Johnson Carlier, is located east of the existing courthouse, which was built in 1915. The buildings are connected by an enclosed corridor, thus preserving the history of the old courthouse and making it part of a new complex that will offer improved security and state-of-the-art technology that will allow victims to view court proceedings in a secure area. 

“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.”
— Tom Harrison, SVP & Managing Director, Johnson Carlier

Crews began work on the $20-million facility in 2019. More than 1 million lb of structural steel and more than 128,000 lb of metal deck were used in construction. Other notable highlights include nearly 28,000 pieces of main structural members and parts, with nearly 35,000 linear ft of material.

The Arizona office of Mortenson says that the firm and its trade partners have not had a recordable job-related illness or injury in the state for an entire year. Mortenson estimates this safety milestone was achieved by more than 1,000 team members and trade partners who performed more than 800,000 hours of work across 14 projects in the state. Mortenson crews reduced safety hazards through a variety of practices, including 5S, scheduling and planning, quality management and collaborative execution as well as by establishing comprehensive safety cultures on its projects. The firm’s current projects include the Hyatt Place in Phoenix, the new Multi-Purpose Arena for Arizona State University and The Beam on Farmer (shown below in progress), both located in Tempe.
