Project: Capital Judicial Center
Color: Dover #026
Finish: Smooth Shot Blast
Location: Augusta, Maine
Architect: PDT Architects

The Capital Judicial Center is a distinctly modern state building that conveys respect and dignity for the court and citizens alike, and offers spectacular views of the Kennebec River and downtown Augusta. It houses the Augusta District Court, Kennebec County Superior Court and family court, as well as administrative offices. The architecture was designed to echo the historic Kennebec County Courthouse building next door and maintains some of the same features, including a lantern atop the glassed stairway that reprises the bell tower on the county courthouse.

As the modern alternative to stone, cement and slate, Petrarch panels give the impact needed to make designs stand out from the crowd. They bring individuality and style to a building while being extremely durable, low maintenance and highly resistant to impact.  Petrarch panels passed the rigid requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 285 Fire Test Standard.

Manufactured by Omnis, Petrarch’s strength and lightweight features in both 5/16” (7mm) and 7/16” (10mm) thicknesses make it the ideal choice for unique façades. Choose from a variety of colors and finishes to customize your project.
