Christopher S. Bond United States Courthouse

Jefferson City

Situated on a scenic bluff overlooking the Missouri River, the Christopher S. Bond U.S. Courthouse is home to the Central Division of the U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts for the Western District of Missouri. Named for a former U.S. Senator from Missouri, the courthouse includes two district courtrooms, two magistrate courtrooms, a bankruptcy chamber, and offices for the U.S. Marshall Service, the U.S. Attorney, Probation, Pretrial Services, GSA offices and local federal congressional offices. 

The project was designed for progressive collapse criteria, blast design, and Seismic Classification “D”. It was completed one month ahead of schedule and $3.5 million under budget while achieving LEED Gold Certification for its sustainability, construction materials and methods. Sustainable features include a green roof, reducing water use by 44 percent, using 13 percent recycled content, and recycling 80 percent of construction waste materials.
