Fresno County, B.F. Sisk Courthouse Renovation

The Superior Court of California, County of Fresno has multiple facilities serving the downtown area. The B. F. Sisk Courthouse, constructed in 1967 as a federal building and courthouse, was vacated by the federal government after the Robert E. Coyle United States Courthouse was dedicated in October 2005. Under Public Law 108-221, 108th Congress, the federal government conveyed title to the B. F. Sisk Courthouse to the State for use by the Superior Court for $1 with the stipulation that the building be used for the administration of justice. The Sisk building has been completely renovated with capacity for up to 16 courtrooms and support space for civil and family courts.

Construction began in July 2008 and was completed on budget in November 2010.
