Text description provided by the architects. This project consist to maintain the 950m² of the 1865 historical building and add an expansion of 3410m² for a project area of 4360m².
The expansion includes three new courtrooms and new spaces for the development of all essential services and offices for the proper functioning of a courthouse in the 21st century.
In a sober contemporary architecture, the expansion is designed to showcase the historical aspect of the existing building. The new courthouse will be the only one to offer all the services of the judicial district of Montmagny.
To respond to complex operating criteria, an integrated design process was established to ensure the involvement of the client and all the professionals throughout the project development.
The design of the building reflects the high ecological criteria for LEED-NC Gold certification. The LEED accredited professionals have ensured the integration of low tech sustainable strategies to meet the budget. They have guided the designers in the design of the courthouse and accompanied the client in the application of LEED-NC requirements in the building.
