Marietta Municipal Court

Meeting guidelines for accessibility, technology and security.

Due to ADA violations and space issues at its existing building, the Marietta Municipal Court was in dire need of a new facility. Working with the court, M+A designed the renovation of a vacant building that the court purchased to relocate. The new facility includes two multimedia courtrooms, a secured entry for prisoners, offices for the judge, magistrate, probation officers, deputy, clerk of courts and the City of Marietta law director. Major aspects of design consideration for this project included floodplain issues and security for the court. The new facility meets all Ohio Supreme Court Design Guidelines for accessibility, technology and security.
