Capital projects

Capital bond funds may be allocated for repairs, renovations and construction of new facilities that improve the efficiency of court operations and the health and safety of courthouse occupants. There is one new construction project and several renovation projects in progress that are funded by recent court bond bills.

  • New Lowell Judicial Center
  • Haverhill District Court renovation
  • Brighton Division of the Boston Municipal Court renovation
  • East Brookfield District Court roof replacement

Deferred maintenance projects

There is a renewed emphasis on reducing the backlog of deferred maintenance issues with Trial Court buildings across the state. In addition to capital bond funds, the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) administers a separate deferred maintenance allocation that is distributed to state agencies and the Judiciary each Fiscal Year. Deferred maintenance projects are identified and prioritized as part of the Commonwealth Asset Management Information System (CAMIS), a statewide database of all buildings owned and managed by the state. CAMIS is the major decision making tool for determining which repair projects will be funded and moved forward into implementation. 

These projects are administered collaboratively by the Trial Court and DCAM. The project prioritization tries to optimize the appropriation in to court facilities that offer the best return on investment. Five years ago, a study completed by Gienapp Design Associates determined that $500 million was required to meet all of the critical deferred maintenance needs of the Trial Court buildings.
