If you believe that the court system exists to protect the rights of everyone, join us in supporting the Equal Justice Ahead Campaign.
What Are The Changes?
- Increase our capacity to serve more clients by adding at least 5 new offices.
- Create a central entry-way with increased security (this is especially needed since we serve victims of domestic violence).
- Creating a community room that will be used for workshops, classes, self-help services, clinics, etc. we will also convene the community for community workshops.
- Creating a small conference room adjacent to a children’s room (may be called the Kids Corner) separated by a soundproof glass window to allow clients to consult privately with WLS staff while still supervising their children.
What Are The Benefits?
- A more client-friendly environment that will feel safe, secure and welcoming.
- Increased security and privacy for clients (this is especially important for victims of domestic violence).
- An improved Self-Help Center, where individuals can learn how to complete, serve and file forms necessary to represent themselves in court.
- A healthier, more sustainable building (upgrades to HVAC and lighting will improve energy efficiency and decrease utility costs; replacing interlocking ceiling tile with a grid suspension system to allow easier access for repairs to HVAC, plumbing, etc.).
What's The Manufacturing Process?
The renovation project will utilize a company called DIRTT, which is a leading technology-driven manufacturer of highly customized interiors. DIRTT combines its proprietary ICE® 3D design, configuration and manufacturing software with integrated in-house manufacturing of its innovative prefabricated interior construction solutions with sustainability elements. DIRTT provides greater cost certainty, lower labor costs, and a sustainability element not offered by other companies. The DIRTT system offers a more efficient way of building and offers future adaptability along with significant reduced costs in labor.
