Administrative Office of PA Courts Mechanicsburg, PA

The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts called on AthenianRazak for transaction assistance and development advisory services for their 50,000 sf office and data center facility, which serves the data requirements for the entire Pennsylvania Judiciary. The first decision was whether to relocate or stay in place. AthenianRazak worked with the client, the client’s IT staff, and their broker to provide initial validation of programming, followed by analysis of physical systems (including risk analysis, development of design parameters and technical specification, financial analysis, total cost of occupancy modeling, and lease structure review and benchmarking). Along with engineering experts, we solicited and evaluated both existing building and build-to-suit proposals from short-listed sites and developers, which led to a decision by the client to remain in place and renovate. That decision made, AthenianRazak segued to the role of Owner’s Representative, successfully managing the entire process of renovating the facility, fit-out, and commissioning for re-occupancy, with the facility kept in operation throughout the process.
