Ada County Courthouse
Ada County Courthouse (1938-1939)—Custom Plaster restored the three-coat flat and ornamental plaster in this iconic nine story Art Deco building. Originally constructed during the Great Depression with WPA funding, the building served as a courthouse and jail for 63 years. The building was boarded up in 2002 and narrowly escaped demolition after outcry from the citizens of Boise. The building recently underwent seismic and hydronic upgrades and now houses the Idaho Law and Justice Learning Center.
Preservation Idaho bestowed the project an Orchid Award for Contribution to Historic Preservation in 2016.
