Scranton Federal Courthouse and Post Office
This project included renovation of the existing 1931 neoclassical building, as well as the design of a modern addition. Renovation design entailed a complete structural evaluation including a seismic upgrade to comply with FEMA and GSA regulations. At the new building, the 70-foot-high clerestory atrium design uses exposed structural elements as primary architectural features. The glass roof and walls of the atrium are supported by a system of steel trusses and concrete frames, utilizing building techniques reminiscent of the original historical construction.
