The Seattle United States Courthouse – a remarkable facility
Beaubois crafted exceptional wood furnishings for the new 20-storey Seattle United States Courthouse. A $200-M (USD) contract, this extensive project was yet another opportunity for Beaubois to make its mark among the buildings that serve the American justice system.
Using a type of cherry wood, the Beaubois team produced judges’ benches, witness stands, court clerks’ workstations and benches for public seating, as well as wall panels, doors, frames and moldings. Beaubois crafted quality furnishings for the building’s entrance and cafeteria service counters, as well as wall panels and architectural woodwork for the seven-storey-high atrium.
As a special touch, the team used African white mahogany to create louvers composed of nine-inch-wide blades made to resemble airplane wings. The remarkable louvers gave each room a unique style.
This was Beaubois’ second project in Seattle. In 2002, the firm contributed to the building of the new Seattle Seahawks stadium.
