The order has a value of USD 77.55 M, which is about SEK 660 M. The General Services Administration is the authority responsible and the customer. The approximately 46,000 sq. m. building will house 17 courtrooms, for such authorities as the U.S. District Court and Clerk of the Court, the U.S. Magistrate Court, the U.S. Marshals' Service, the U.S. Attorney's Office, the U.S. Probation Office and the prosecution authorities, as well as premises for non-court related Federal agencies.
