Nicholas County Judicial Center

Trace Creek is proud to report that construction work is moving along exactly on schedule at the Nicholas County Judicial Center. This week we are erecting structural steel, laying masonry walls and performing backfill operations.

Trace Creek is noted for delivering top quality finished projects and we are dedicated to maintaining that reputation. We have assembled a high-performing organization that is doing great work, maintaining exceptional quality standards and adhering to a schedule all while a global pandemic is underway. We have modified our approach to this project appropriately to work safely during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Ridge Bentley, Project Manager for Trace Creek, says, "At Trace Creek, we’re known for our ability to get projects done on time and on budget. Many times that means adjusting our approach where necessary so that we can continue to push projects forward.” Trace Creek’s ability to optimize the construction schedule is a key reason why the Nicholas County Judicial Center project remains on track.

Ridge went on to say that, “This project is the highlight of my career. It is a tremendous honor to be working with project architect, Brandstetter Carroll Inc., our superintendent Jack Covert and an amazingly professional and focused construction team. We’re proud to work together to create a judicial center that will be a landmark and a showpiece for the people of Nicholas County.”
