Firms narrowed to design courthouse, jail

POSTED: August 15, 2012 10:00 p.m.

Three companies have made the short list to design Forsyth County’s new courthouse and expanded detention center.

During a meeting Tuesday of the selection committee, it was revealed that the finalists for project architect include KSGW Architects, Piper O’Brien Herr Architects and Wakefield Beasley & Associates.

Both KSGW and Piper O’Brien Herr are based in Alpharetta, while Wakefield Beasley is in Norcross.

Donna Kukarola, the county’s procurement department director, said interviews are slated for Aug. 29.

“I’ll be contacting the firms and we’ll go from there,” she said.

The bid winner will be tasked with designing the structures, whose construction will be funded through the seventh round of the special purpose local option sales tax, or SPLOST VII, which voters approved in November.

The 1-cent sales tax included an estimated $100 million for the structures, which will be built across from each other on East Maple Street in downtown Cumming, as well as a parking deck.
