08/24/17 Build New England Award 2017 - Salem Probate and Family Court

Located at 36 Federal Street in the heart of downtown Salem, the Salem Probate & Family Court (Salem PFC) building is an essential element of the City’s residential and civic historic district known as the Federal Street District. Historically known as the Registry of Deeds Courthouse, the original Court building was constructed in 1909. The primary goal of the Salem PFC renovation and addition project was to efficiently house the current and future needs of the Probate Court.

The project approach comprised two key strategies: comprehensive historic renovation and improvement of the 1909 building; and, construction of a new "rightsized” addition, replacing the existing, ill-suited one built in 1979. 

W.T. Rich served as Construction Manager for this challenging project. The project was announced as a Performance Award winner in the AGC sponsored Build New England Award Program 2017. ?
