Clackamas County Courthouse

Portland, OR USA

Fengate is lead developer and equity investor to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the new Clackamas County Courthouse through a public-private partnership with a 30-year term. Clackamas County selected Fengate PCL Progress Partners (FP3) in June 2022, following a competitive procurement process. Fengate achieved commercial and financial close on September 2, 2022.

The new 240,000 sq. ft facility will feature 16 courtrooms, 17 judicial chambers, space for the District Attorney’s Office, secure loading and staging areas, enhanced prisoner transfer facilities, jury assembly and grand jury spaces, safe corridors for courthouse users, and secure holding cells for violent offenders.

The current Clackamas County courthouse is in urgent need of replacement. Built in 1936 to serve 50,000 residents, the facility can no longer handle the demands of a population of 420,000 that continues to grow. The gap between space availability and judicial needs of the growing population in the County has led to delays in trials and incarceration and affected child support hearings and civil litigation trials.

“We are honored to be selected to deliver this new, safe and secure courthouse with the features and services that the growing population of Clackamas County needs,” said Mac Bell, Managing Director, Infrastructure Investments, Fengate. “We look forward to working closely with the County and bringing our team’s deep experience to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the new facility for the community.”
