Enclos is currently amidst the installation phase of the New San Diego United States Courthouse. The Richard Meier & Partners designed federal courthouse is set to grace Southern California with a 16-story, 300,000 square foot structure that stands in contrast to its surrounding cityscape with terracotta and glass cladding. Mid-construction photographs of the project are currently available at Enclos’ website here.

Enclos developed the unitized systems on display for the glass, terracotta, soffit and canopy wall systems, including oversized 19 by 9 foot insulated glass units featuring various combinations of sunshades, louvers, sunscreens and perforated metal panels. Stringent blast requirements contributed greatly to the unitized system's members, anchors and connections.

With multiple crews working simultaneously on different elevations throughout the installation phase, the Enclos field operations team is working in unison with Hensel Phelps Construction to deliver the exterior enclosure package at an expedited rate. The courthouse contributes significantly to the local San Diego workforce through stringent Small Business Requirements. Enclos’ scope of work with the local contracting community complies with these project specific goals.

The New San Diego United States Courthouse is scheduled for completion in early 2012.
