Staten Island Courthouse

The Supreme Court Complex The new icon on Staten Island

The largest real estate investment in the history of Staten Island, the new Supreme Court will be the culmination of the ambitious project to breathe new life into the area, a project that has been ongoing for several years. Valued at $200M, the building will transform the urban skyline of this famous island located south of Manhattan.
 

Beaubois will provide the architectural woodwork, the furnishings for the 15 courtrooms, reception and public areas, the wall panels, hand rails and even the kitchenettes in the lounges. Its contribution goes well beyond millwork as the company must incorporate several materials - porcelain, stainless steel and stone - into its pieces. For example, there are picket-shaped sleeper walls to be incorporated into a steel frame and acoustic panels covered by wainscoting.

The design of the building, all angles, reflects its civic role, expressed by the construction of four similar towers to symbolize the equality of all under the law.

In addition to the installation of leading-edge equipment, the project's program includes green fit-ups in order to obtain LEED Silver Certification. Beaubois is making its contribution there by using, among others, FSC certified wood.

The new courthouse will be home to the Supreme, Civil and Criminal Courts and will provide users with numerous parking places.

This is Beaubois' second mandate from the New York State Government, the first being the architectural woodwork for the Bronx Criminal Courthouse.

Towards the end of the 1700s and through the following century, Staten Island was a debarkation point for New York and served as a quarantine island. It was therefore the mandatory stop for immigrants who wanted to settle in the Big Apple. As the new Courthouse is located on the site of a former cemetery where immigrants were buried during the 19th century, a memorial will be built to honor these Irish and Germans who followed the American Dream.
