Project Description

When Greene County needed restorations made at the Greene County Courthouse in Catskill, NY, the Palombo Group provided construction management services. The budget of $15,000,000 covered many changes and upgrades to the existing structure as well as two new additions.

Some changes brought the building up to date with compliance issues and created needed space, while others were upgrades of quality and visual appeal. Some of the more beautiful changes were the restoration of the existing cupola and balustrades, restoration of the existing courtrooms, upgrading of the roof from galvalum to copper and restoration of the exterior sandstone. On the purely practical side, additional holding cells were constructed for inmates and ADA access concerns were addressed with the addition of an elevator and vestibule. Less obvious upgrades were made to the fire alarm system, master clock system and the intercom system. new utilities were also run to the building.
