Saint John Law Courts

Project Info

This project consists of a major new 7-storey, 15,000± m² law court and office complex. It is an energy-efficient facility with 13 courtrooms, a barristers’ lounge, and office space for the judiciary, court services, public prosecutions, sheriff services, the Department of Public Safety and policing. The facility includes an underground parking facility and is connected by an underground tunnel to the new Saint John Police Headquarters. The main building was constructed with structural steel framing and the underground portions were constructed using cast-in-place concrete. Compositely designed floor beams were used for economy, fire resistance and vibration resistance. Seismic loads were resisted by steel bracing. The bracing locations and configurations were determined based on Architectural planning requirements.
