Judicial Council of California

Redding Courthouse
Judicial Council of CA - New Redding Courthouse


The Judicial Council of California is the policymaking body of the California courts, the largest court system in the nation, and oversees the superior courts of 58 counties. One of the newest courthouses in California will be the New Redding Courthouse located in the city of Redding in Shasta County in Northern California.

Located across the street from the existing 1950’s era facility, the new courthouse is designed to address and symbolize societal changes of the 21st Century by creating a welcoming and accessible civic landmark reflecting permanency, formal order, innovation and dignity. The 6 floor, 166,000 square feet facility includes 14 courtrooms with state-of-the-art display, networking and communications systems and consolidates three existing court facilities into a single building. The new courthouse will also have jury deliberation rooms, a self-help center, a children’s waiting room, attorney/client conference rooms and in-custody holding systems.

Vantage was responsible for the building-wide IT infrastructure, courtroom audiovisual and video arraignment systems and the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) to support emergency responders and interior cell phone reception. In addition, we designed the visitor queuing and check-in kiosk to improve efficient processing of visitors. We will also oversee the technology installation during construction. To reduce costs and improve efficiency, we co-located the IT, AV, DAS, building management systems and security systems in a central technology room for each floor of the new building.

The project held a groundbreaking ceremony in February 2019 and is slated to open in Summer 2021.
