Travis County to Build New Probate Courts

Vaughn was selected by Travis County to renovate a 60,000 SF, circa-1936 federal courthouse into the new home of the Travis County Probate Courts in Austin. One of the anticipated project challenges will be keeping architectural details true to the original building, since the building is on the National Register of Historic Places. The facility is surrounded by historic trees, which our team must be careful to keep intact and healthy. And, it is adjacent to the busiest bus station in Austin, so protection of the public will be paramount. Construction is expected to commence in April 2019 and will be completed in June 2020. The design firm is Lord Aeck Sargent.
