Palm Beach County Main Courthouse Hardening

West Palm Beach, FL

Weitz was the construction manager for this project and self-performed various scopes of work for the hurricane hardening of both the West Palm Beach Judicial Center and the State Attorney/ Public Defender’s (SAPD) building located in the heart of West Palm Beach, Fla.

The project entailed the removal of the existing glazing and stops, which was replaced with hurricane impact glass and new stops. The SAPD building is six stories and the courthouse is an 11-story building. The majority of the work took place during non-business hours at the request of the client. Project duration was a total of 13 months for the completion of both buildings, including other minor scopes.
