This project was a heritage renovation to the existing courthouse in Saskatoon. It consisted of the construction of a new 4-storey concrete structure addition with one level of underground parking. There was also a renovation of the existing 3-storey structure that took place after the client occupied the addition.

The project included – between the addition and renovations – a total of 9 courtrooms, a new entrance, new administration areas and offices for the judges, etc. This entire project took place while the building remained in use by the public, including changing the mechanical and electrical systems to bring them up to current standards. During the course of the project, there were a number of scheduled phases required to allow the owners to maintain operation of the courthouse throughout construction. Adding another level of complexity to the project was the fact that the addition to the building was constructed very close to the property line and shoring was required to maintain the neighboring property.

Graham self-performed concrete, millwork and case work, doors, hardware, an extensive wood paneling millwork install in the judges’ rooms, washroom accessories, toilet partitions.
