The Project is a competition-winning design for a development which will conform the largest consolidated Judicial Complex in North America.
Two towers flank a soaring thirty-storey atrium to create a landmark building for the Provincial Court, Court of Queens Bench and the Court of Appeal. This multilevel complex includes 90 Courts, extensive Judicial Chambers, rehabilitation of an existing heritage building and the creation of new urban park.
The project is a 110.000 sq m development for the Courthouse of Alberta. The program includes a 24 and a 21-storey tower, with a 26-storey connecting atrium, offices, public and secured areas, a library and the Court.
