Ground Broken in Howard County


June 24, 2019 – Howard County Executive Calvin Ball broke ground on the new Howard County Circuit Courthouse. The 238,000 square foot facility will be completed through a public-private partnership, the first for Howard County, in partnership with Edgemoor – Star America Judicial Partners.

In Spring of 2016, AIAI facilitated a series of discussions, meeting with stakeholders to share best practices through educational workshops which led to the procurement process being approved in March 2017, and the issuance of the RFQ. Commercial and financial close followed in Fall of 2018.


“Thank you to Howard County for being such a great partner,” said Edgemoor – Star America Judicial Partners CEO Brian Dugan. “Numerous public-sector owners, reporters, conference hosts, and others have contacted me and our consortium trying to learn from our partnership with Howard County and understand just how Howard County did it, and did it so efficiently. Our success sends a strong positive signal to private companies that want to do work with Howard County or locate their businesses here.”
