A Design Build Courthouse In New Mexico

In a design-build effort with Carter-Burgess, Bergelectric provided over $1 million in cost saving ideas for this project. This collaborative endeavor included design of a complete fire alarm system and low-voltage pathways for security/CCTV. Berg has also supplied all electrical, lighting and dimmer controls and branch power. Berg’s San Diego Fire Alarm/Security Division installed the fire-alarm wiring and component equipment.

Electrically, the new facility is linked to its elderly counterpart, as well as City Hall, and the new infrastructure tie-ins had to be completed without interruptions to the existing buildings. Coordinating with all of the existing utilities – El Paso Electric, Qwest and Comcast – was a tremendous challenge. Berg had to carefully schedule power shut-downs with these suppliers to avoid disruption to the city’s critical operations.”

The new Las Cruces courthouse followed a successful string of judicial facilities completed by Berg, including federal courthouses in Denver, Orlando, Fresno and the El Paso courthouse.
