BHB provided MEP and security system design for a new three-story, 50,0000 SF, $10 million Sub-Courthouse for Tarrant County located in Arlington. The facility includes a satellite courtroom, a community meeting room and administrative offices. The building was completed in June 2008, and received LEED Silver Certification on July 24, 2009 (all 36 points submitted were accepted).

It is the first LEED-certified building in Arlington and Tarrant County, and the first LEED-certified county courthouse. The implementation of sustainable design on this project reduced annual energy consumption by 38.6 percent, resulting in an annual cost savings of 21.8 percent on energy bills.
