The New Madera Courthouse – a unique and impressive structure
Beaubois provided all of the architectural woodwork for the new Madera Courthouse in Yosemite Valley, California. The courthouse, previously located in an old condemned schoolhouse, now have a new 110,000-sq.-ft. building in Madera’s downtown core. Because the county lacked funds for the project, the state amended the law and took over the institution. With an investment of $100M, the new courthouse comply with LEED® Silver status and was designed to blend harmoniously with the urban setting.
The Beaubois team produced and installed built-in furniture for 10 courtrooms, including judges’ benches, witness, bailiff and jury boxes, lawyers’ desks, public seating benches, and wall panels. The furnishings were crafted from cherry and oak hardwoods. Douglas fir wall panels and a superb louvered ceiling was installed in the atrium of the building.
While designed to be entirely functional, the new courthouse also features elements of nature, including four stone-clad sections divided by glass to resemble huge boulders separated by the Merced River. A unique and impressive structure, the new courthouse reflects the on-going development of downtown Madera.
