The South Australian Supreme and District Court Buildings, located within Adelaide CBD, are undergoing a $31m upgrade funded by the SA State Government.
The existing heritage-listed buildings, built between 1869 and 1880, are undergoing changes including the conversion of six existing civil courtrooms on Level 5 of the Sir Samuel Way building into three criminal courtrooms and refurbishment of 6 existing civil courtrooms in the Supreme Court precinct, in addition to refurbishment of nominated judicial chambers and provision of new entrance lobbies on Gouger Street and King William Street.
In addition to the building works, the existing outdoor areas within the precinct are undergoing a new landscaping theme, with a new public outdoor courtyard and internal courtyard lobby being provided.
Dewick & Associates worked closely with the Mechanical and Electrical Contractors, FMS Commercial and Tyrone Electrical Services respectively, to provide the Operation and Maintenance Manuals for all elements of the installation.
The mechanical services installation for the three buildings comprised Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) air conditioning systems, split ducted and wall split air conditioning systems, packaged air conditioning units and outside air and exhaust fans.
The electrical services installation comprised the provision of distribution boards, general power and uninterruptable power supply (UPS) systems, general and existing emergency lighting, communications systems, security systems, CCTV, MATV and a photo voltaic system as a renewable power source.
Utilising its O&M Manual template, Dewick & Associates detailed the scope of works, system descriptions, equipment schedules, maintenance requirements and contact details, in addition to providing sections for the insertion of Certificates, Commissioning / Test Results and As Installed Drawings.
