Programming / Design Assistance

Strategic planning has a very broad focus, with emphasis on future space requirements, existing deficiencies, and general strategies for improvement. Programming, on the other hand, has a very specific focus. As part of the programming process, philosophies of operation are defined; specific goals and policies are articulated; functional space standards are developed or refined; detailed component space needs are documented; and operational requirements, such as adjacency, security, and technology are identified. JPA provides a fundamental communications link to translate desirable operational practices into clearly expressed space needs. The result of the process is a comprehensive document which serves as a spatial / operational guide for the design of new and renovated facilities.

Effective and efficient court operations require conducive facilities. And the design of courthouses, and of individual court spaces, requires expertise which transcends a general design proficiency. JPA provides technical assistance in areas such as facility blocking and stacking, agency layouts, and courtroom and courtset design. JPA can also assist with selection of materials, lighting, finishes, and furnishings to ensure that the final design solution appropriately responds to the image and dignity of the Court. JPA is able to provide other ancillary services, such as operational and security planning, activation planning, and move management assistance to facilitate the transition from an existing facility to a new one.
