PROJECT DETAILS

The Pike County Judicial Center, located on Main Street, is one block from the existing County Courthouse. It is the first LEED Silver Certified Judicial Center in Kentucky. The design features arched windows to the exterior in all courtrooms, and the first and second floors are connected by a monumental open stair. The main lobby and all courtrooms are inundated with natural light from the generously sized windows.

The Project Development Board requested an exterior design that was traditional in nature, while incorporating the style and context of the local community. The primarily brick facade is anchored with a natural limestone entry and corners. Generous stone detailing, traditional cornices and flemish bond brick panels enhance the classical design.

Pike County Judicial Center earned LEED certification featuring the following sustainable features:

  • Low Emitting Materials – Adhesives and Sealants, Paints and Coatings, Carpet systems, Composite Wood and Agrifiber
  • Lighting and Thermal Comfort Occupancy Controls
  • Building thermal comfort assessment
  • Mechanical and Electrical Systems Commissioning
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality Performance
  • Reduced Heat island effect roof – Roof SRI = 92, Minimized impact on microclimate and human and wildlife inhabitants
  • Environmentally friendly vegetated (green) roof
  • Natural Copper Roofing System with highly recycled content
  • Optimize energy performance – 21% Improvement compared to ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1 – 2004
  • Water Efficient Landscaping – No Irrigation
  • Bicycle Storage and Changing Rooms
  • Preferred parking for low-emitting and fuel efficient vehicles
  • Parking size to not exceed minimum local zoning requirements
  • Permeable Pavement Systems/Storm Water Design Quality Control – Reducing impervious cover, increasing on site infiltration, and managing storm water runoff
  • Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials
  • Increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured within the region.

The Louisville Metro Housing Authority and the City of Louisville will break ground Friday, March 29, on Phase I of the Beecher Terrace Revitalization. Phase I includes a single, four-story building with 117 units designed specifically for seniors.

As part of a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Implementation Grant, the new Beecher Terrace will be transformed into a sustainable, walkable, and amenity-rich community. When complete it will offer over 600 units of affordable housing. The buildings reflect the character of nearby neighborhoods while maintaining their heritage and identity.

The entire redevelopment is pursuing U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and USGBC Kentucky LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) and Enterprise Green Community certification.

Sherman Carter Barnhart has worked with the Louisville Metro Housing Authority for over 25 years, and we are proud to be a partner with McCormack Baron Companies on the Beecher Terrace Revitalization.
