The Herrick Corporation

L.A. Federal Courthouse

350 W 1st St, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA
About L.A. Federal Courthouse

The LA Federal Courthouse is a 10-story, 633,000 square foot building featuring a striking and modern 'cube' design that is attractive, efficient, and safe.

An innovative structural engineering concept allows the cubic design to “float” over a stone base while being one of the nation’s safest buildings.

The new facility includes 24 courtrooms and 32 justice chambers. Herrick was responsible for designing the temporary shoring system that supported “the cube” during construction. The building is designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification, due to such innovations as the serrated facade, which maximizes views from the interior and cuts down on up to 50% of heat generated from solar rays.
