Perkins Eastman | Nassau County Family and Matrimonial Courts

Nassau County Family and Matrimonial Courts

Mineola, New York
Perkins Eastman provided services ranging from site feasibility and program verification through construction administration for the consolidation of Nassau County’s Family Court and Matrimonial Court Buildings.

The  previously existing court buildings did not meet modern standards for courthouse planning; physical and electronic security; separation of public, private, and secure circulation; and handicapped accessibility. In addition, the non-adjacency and separation of services among the Family, Matrimonial, and County Court buildings were very inefficient.

The ultimate project goal was to maximize space sharing and functional efficiency while achieving an environment suitable for the delivery of justice. The final solution also had to prepare for the future needs of the county’s judicial system, including planning for appropriate parking.

Perkins Eastman’s project team further investigated several alternatives for the siting of the building to determine the most viable option for housing the Nassau County Family Court, Matrimonial Courts, and related County functions.
