Project by Montgomery Sisam Architects in collaboration with Goguen Architecture and Julian Jaffary Architect. 

Presented by Daniel Ling, Helena Mouton and Jacob Kummer of Montgomery Sisam Architects  

The new six-storey Fredericton Justice Building is the first purpose-built project of its kind in the city since 1880.  This courthouse will take its place alongside many important civic buildings that form part of an institutional precinct in the city centre.  The simple, solid mass of the courthouse is designed in deference to its judicial function and was inspired by the enduring, timeless quality of the many institutional buildings that have long distinguished Fredericton as a capital city and centre for government, education, military, art and faith. Contemporary applications of stone, brick, copper and concrete work in concert to create a mature, refined expression of traditional building materials and techniques that characterize much of the downtown core.  

The presentation will describe the evolving history of this project, the collaborative design process, approach to context, material applications, and the methods and challenges involved in planning a state of the art courthouse for three benches of the court.
