COURTHOUSE HISTORY

Bangor Courthouse History

Construction of the new Bangor courthouse facility continued throughout 2008. Consigli Construction, is constructing the Penobscot County Judicial Center on the city’s Exchange Street . Boston architect Leers Weinzapfel Associates is designing the interior of the building. The new courthouse facility is approximately 90,000-square-feet .

The new courthouse is designed to serve the needs of area residents and the judiciary, incorporating seven courtrooms, including one for arraignments, three for jury trials and three for family matters. With safety in mind, the architects planned the structure to provide separate entrance areas for prisoners, helping to enhance security for the general public. In addition, a high-tech security system will control access to all parts of the building.

The new facility is scheduled to open in November 2009.
