APP modernises NSW regional Courthouses

Since 2006, APP has been working closely with the NSW Department of Attorney General and Justice to upgrade many Courthouses throughout regional NSW. Many of these majestic heritage-listed facilities did not satisfy the operating requirements of today’s Court system and needed intensive maintenance. Most needed extensive internal upgrades to meet modern standards for OH&S, and to provide a better workplace environment for the many people who work in the justice system.

APP’s role spanned from managing the master planning, concept design and detailed design on some facilities, to managing the upgrade of mechanical services, disability access and compliance, as well as the refurbishment of registry, jury deliberation and jury assembly rooms. In some cases, entire refurbishments were conducted.

In each project, extensive stakeholder management was undertaken to ensure needs of local staff, end-users and the public were all satisfied. Other challenges including tight budgets and programs were overcome by reworking the design.
