Architects' floor plans call for three additional deliberation rooms, two full-size courtrooms, enhanced security features and a hearing room. Inmates would be transported from the jail underneath up to the courtrooms by a secured elevator. There would be ample room to sequester witnesses from the people they are testifying against.
