The construction of the Pinal County Complex, designed to house both the Western Pinal Justice Court and Maricopa Municipal Court, was recently completed by Johnson Carlier Construction, an Arizona-based general contractor. The project was completed for $10.5 million.
The new complex, located in Maricopa at 20025 N. Wilson Ave., consists of two new single-story buildings totaling more than 32,000 square feet. The larger building wraps around the existing courts building, which also received various renovations and additions. This building houses courtrooms, judge’s chambers, and new facilities for the Pinal County Sheriff including holding cells, interview rooms, office space, and K9 kennels. The smaller facility is now home to general offices for employees, including the assessor’s office and the recorder’s office, as well as space for the District 4 supervisor.
“We have truly enjoyed working with the Pinal County officials and could not be happier with how this project turned out,” says Jeff Eells, Sr. Project Manager, Johnson Carlier. “The Pinal County Complex will be a place for both Pinal County officials and residents of the City of Maricopa to conduct business for many years to come.”
Pinal County is located between Arizona’s two largest cities, Phoenix and Tucson. This proximity to the state’s major transportation corridors makes it an attractive place to live or invest. Both the Interstate 10, which connects Santa Monica, California, to Jacksonville, Florida, and Interstate 8, that takes motorists to San Diego, makes travel easy. Governor Doug Ducey recently approved new infrastructure improvements, including $33 million to rebuild the Gila River Bridge on Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Casa Grande.
