Lowell Judicial Center

Lowell Judicial Center, 370 Jackson Street

Lowell, Massachusetts

Description: The new Lowell Trial Court will be an energy efficient courthouse overlooking the historic Hamilton Canal. The cutting-edge facility will be constructed for the Superior, District, Probate & Family, Juvenile, and Housing Courts of Middlesex County. A Law Library/Court Service Center and an office space for the District Attorney and Registry of Deeds will also be provided. The new building will replace a leased facility and 2 outdated state-owned courthouses. A goal in the design of this courthouse is to minimize the use of energy drawn from utility grids. The courthouse will be extremely energy efficient, with an expected LEED-platinum rating, and will feature a chilled beam HVAC system, photo-voltaic panels, and sophisticated building systems controls.
