Team Selected for New Clackamas County Courthouse

We are proud to announce Mayer/Reed is on the team selected for the Clackamas County Courthouse replacement project following a year-long competitive procurement process. With Fengate PCL Progress Partners (FP3), we will be designing signage and wayfinding for the brand new facility in Oregon City. The current courthouse is in urgent need of replacement to meet the needs of the county (it was built in 1936 for a population of 50,000 and now serves a community of 420,000). We’re excited to be part of the team!
