New Federal Courthouse Coming to Des Moines

GSA announces construction of new U.S. courthouse to help meet Judiciary’s needs

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is set to begin work on a new U.S. Courthouse in Des Moines, Iowa. Construction plans have been in the works since the current court facilities were identified by the federal Judiciary as a top priority for replacement.

This investment allows GSA to leverage the resources of our agency and the federal government as a whole to foster economic development in local communities where we operate.

“The employees of the U.S. General Services Administration are proud to be a part of this important project,” said GSA Regional Administrator Jason Klumb. “We support the federal courts in their service to our citizens and country. We also thank Mayor Cownie and Des Moines community leaders for their assistance and support in this endeavor.”

GSA’s plan allocates $136,602,000 for site acquisition, design and construction of a new 229,000-square-foot U.S. Courthouse and inside parking spaces. The court is currently housed in the U.S. Courthouse in downtown Des Moines and in an adjacent leased Courthouse Annex.

The proposed housing solution will provide nine courtrooms (five district, two magistrate, and two bankruptcy) and 13 chambers.

The House and Senate Appropriations Committees, and the congressional committees that authorize courthouse construction, must approve the investment plan before construction activities can begin. Solicitations for design, construction and others services will be posted on www.fbo.gov as project plans are finalized. Estimated costs, scopes and schedules are subject to change during the GSA procurement process.

All new courthouses and renovations will be completed in accordance with the U.S. Courts Design Guide, meet the 10-year space needs of the court and court-related agencies, and be consistent with the application of courtroom sharing policies.
