Fairfax County Courthouse

Fairfax County Courthouse

Located in the heart of the historic district of Fairfax, the Fairfax County Courthouse was designed to address the deficiencies that plagued the former facility, including overcrowding, shortage of courtrooms, disjointed traffic, illogical use of space, and security concerns. The newly expanded facility allowed for the three court groups and support services to be housed under one roof. Of the forty-two courtrooms, seventeen were designed as part of the new addition while twenty-five remain in the existing facility, the renovated Jennings Building. The design added 325,000 SF of new construction and included the renovation of 250,000 SF in the Jennings Building.
