Illinois Supreme Court
The Illinois State Supreme Court Building was designed in neo-classical style by William Carbys Zimmerman with landscape design by Jens Jensen. The project provided an all new central HVAC system with modern controls systems, new technology and lighting (and restored original lighting fixtures in historic spaces). Also featured were new life safety systems, security, window replacement and new finishes; all while maintaining and restoring the historic spaces and elements of the building, including restored original murals, tapestries, and woodwork.
Henneman Engineering was responsible for complete mechanical and electrical engineering design, and also provided full-time on-site observation and Construction Administration for the entire design team during construction.Our project goal was to provide modern 21st Century HVAC and Electrical systems that were seamlessly integrated into the original historic architectural fabric of this beautiful building. This required a unique and innovative design approach to route ductwork and piping in “invisible” locations.
