THE BUCKS COUNTY
JUSTICE CENTER
Two Years Later

- By -
Chris Serpico

S

ince it's now been over two years since the largest
public works project in Bucks County history first
opened its doors to the public on January 10,
2015, your crackerjack investigative reporters here at the
Writs thought it an opportune time to make inquiries
into how things have been going, and what might be
expected to unfold at the "new" Justice Center and
the "old" Courthouse - now known officially as "The
Administration Building."

As for future plans relating to the fifth
floor, Finley believes that the decision
to leave that area unfinished may prove
to be fortuitous as lessons learned from
the first two years of operating the
building can be applied in the future
when the fifth floor is built out.

President Judge Jeffrey Finley feels that most of those
who work in the Justice Center are pleased with the
building. Although as with any new structure, there have
been issues that have arisen, he has heard mostly positive
comments from Justice Center employees as well as the
general public. In fact, he had a unique chance to hear
from the man in the street recently when he spent a day
on jury duty as Juror #22. He found the jury room to be
very comfortable, and observed most of the jurors using
the high tech waiting area to stay connected to their jobs
or their loved ones.

with Mercer tiles on display throughout the building as
well as the strategic placement of municipal emblems
in certain areas.

He continues to hear nice things about the appearance
and the aesthetics of the lobby areas, which were
intentionally designed to have a "Bucks County feel,"

He also praised the work of county maintenance workers
who have "busted their butts to address any concerns."
