Architecture and Design

Tarrant County Law Library – Fort Worth, Texas

Elements of Architecture was procured by Tarrant County to provide design for modifications of the main county Law Library for the purpose of optimizing the existing spaces within the old 1895 Historic County Courthouse located in downtown Fort Worth. This project was one of the results of the Master Plan developed by Elements of Architecture for the entire downtown campus and various facilities close to and impacted by the downtown departments.

The scope of services for this project included evaluation of the spaces for compliance with code requirements, including existing, general building code, ADA and life safety requirements. We also analyzed the electrical demands based on the updated anticipated uses of the space. Services also included performance of field verification of existing conditions and development of a schematic layout based on programming analysis and coordination with the users for functionality of the design. The space totals approximately 8,600 square feet on two floors of the Courthouse.
