The shared courtroom concept Jon Moore developed on his U.S. District Courthouse was so well received by the Federal Judges, that he used the same concept for the County Courthouse. The courtroom layout has four courts per floor, shared by six judges or 21 courtrooms shared by 30 judges.

The design process has created an exceptional project for the County, and one of great value to the taxpayers. With a projected construction cost of about $110 a square foot, this is one of the most cost effective courthouses in the United States.
