Court News: Coming to Concord: Construction Underway at Federal Courthouse to Make Room for Bankrupcy Court Move


Construction inside the federal courthouse in Concord, to make room for the US Bankruptcy Court, will displace the federal court clerk’s office for most of February and is expected to wrap up in early September.

During the first phase of the project, which began in November, workers are retrofitting courtrooms A and B on the first floor. Courtroom A will become the new bankruptcy courtroom, when the US Bankruptcy Court moves from Elm Street in Manchester to the Concord courthouse this fall. Both first-floor courtrooms will also have the same high-definition technological capabilities as the building’s other courtrooms.

When construction is complete, the clerk’s office and intake area for the US Bankruptcy Court will be located on the second floor, to the right as you walk up the stairs, in the former “attorney lounge,” a suite of conference rooms that few attorneys used, said US District Court Clerk Dan Lynch. Attorney conference rooms will remain available on the third floor next to courtrooms 1 and 2.

To date, the US Trustees have not announced any plans to move that office to Concord, but Lynch said there had been some discussions about space in the Cleveland federal building, which adjoins the Concord courthouse.

The federal court clerk’s office is temporarily housed on the second floor of the courthouse, in the US Probation and Pretrial Services reception area. Next month, the federal court clerk’s office will return to its first-floor location, where it will have some new offices and a new conference room.

Construction at the US District courthouse in Concord has begun, to make way for the planned move of the US Bankruptcy Court from Manchester to Concord this fall. Above: new technology is installed in Courtroom A.
