JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The city is looking to hire a consultant to help it complete work at the newly constructed courthouse. Action News has learned, the company hired would oversee final closeout of the project.
The courthouse already cost $350M -- more than $150M over its original budget. It opened in June, after several delays for failed fire protection tests.
The company that built the courthouse, Turner Construction, is working now to bring everything up to code, including violations of the American's with Disabilities Act. The courthouse is under a temporary certificate of occupancy while that takes place. That certificate was recently extended.
No word yet on how much the consultant would cost or when a consultant would be hired.
