Case Study

Toowoomba Courthouse

  • Name: Toowoomba Courthouse
  • Client: Department of Justice and Attorney-General
  • Builder: FKG Group
  • Category: Government

The external refurbishment of Toowoomba Courthouse was undertaken due to the deterioration of the existing external concrete facade that had become a public safety risk and required urgent remediation.

8i Architects role for this project was Principal Consultant, Project Architect and Project Manager.

The Courthouse had to remain fully functional during the course of the refurbishment. Due to the sensitivity of the court recording equipment, any noisy building works needed to be conducted at night. This also mean that weekly site inspections and site meetings were conducted in the evening and at night.

The night works presented it’s own challenges by creating noise at night, limited visibility and workplace health and safety and material issues due to the cold temperatures.

The challenges were resolved by notifying all the neighbours in the surrounding area of the night works being undertaken, installing additional lighting and heating the working area of the roof.

The project required extensive investigation of the existing facade damage. This allowed a comprehensive solution that ensured the damage was fully repaired. The project was completed well under budget and within the time frame required.

The rededication ceremony was conducted on the 31st May, 2016 with Hon. Yvette D’Ath who was the Attorney General and Minister for Justice at the time and Chief Justice Ray Rinaudo.
