Nicholson Joins Kalamazoo Justice Center Project

June 2, 2021
Pittsburgh, Pa

Pittsburgh-based geotechnical specialty contractor Nicholson Construction was recently awarded the augercast pile contract on the new Kalamazoo County Justice Center by construction manager CSM Group, Inc.

Nicholson will be supporting the new, five-story, 165,000-square foot facility with more than 250 augercast piles drilled to depths of up to 50 feet.

 “It’s always special for us to be able to help out on local projects,” said Dan Thome, Senior Vice President of Nicholson’s Central Region and Kalamazoo resident. “Working in the communities that we are part of is a great source of pride for us – and we’re really happy to be part of this project.”

 The state-of-the art facility, which is tentatively scheduled to open in 2023, will eventually house the county’s courts and other criminal-justice related offices. Nicholson’s work on the project will begin in late May.
