Parma Justice Center

Richard L. Bowen + Associates was selected by the City of Parma to perform a programming/needs assessment and architectural, engineering and construction management services for a new judicial, police and detention facility. The RLB+A/PCS team was selected for construction management services.

The main entry level is the primary public access to the prosecutor’s offices, clerk of courts offices, probation, police administration and detectives. A grand central staircase ascends to the linear light-filled upper level atrium where the public has access to four courtrooms. Additional judges’ chambers, deliberation rooms and attorney spaces support busy judicial schedules.

The facility also includes a full-service detention facility with separate accommodations for adult males, females, and juveniles. The jail includes a mix of single and double occupancy cells, along with dormitory style housing, with a 26-inmate capacity.
