The Federal Courthouse is a 143,100 sq. ft. steel frame building — five stories plus basement parking, with space for U.S. Courts and the U.S. Marshall Service. The space includes three courtrooms, four sets of judges’ chambers, detention space with seven holding cells, a new suite for the U.S. Attorney and the U.S. Probation Officer, along with space for a grand jury hearing room. The building was designed by NBBJ’s Seattle office as a high-performance and sustainable facility, and included Smart Building components and infrastructure. Features include PV panels on the roof and a high-performance envelope.

As the owner’s full-time inspectors, CTA generated daily site observation and specialty inspection reports for the Billings Federal Courthouse. The scope included documenting and tracking owner training and commissioning deficiencies. This included documents from the contractor, design team, CM team, and the commissioning agents. Documents included all correspondence, logs and detail of reports, RFIs, project photographs, ASIs, clarifications, contract drawings and specifications, and design submission. CTA organized these into electronic formats and transferred them to the GSA for archiving.

This project finished on-schedule and on-budget. There were several scope increases that could have dramatically impacted the schedule, but CTA reviewed and processed these changes in a way that limited impact on the completion schedule.
