WEYBURN COURT HOUSE RENOVATION COMPLETE AND COURT TO RESUME

Released on May 15, 2012

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that the renovations to the Weyburn Court House are now complete and court will resume the week of June 18, 2012.

"I'm proud to announce the completion of the Weyburn Court House renovation," Government Services Minister Laura Ross said. "These improvements have enhanced the accessibility of the court house, preserved the heritage of this building and brought new life to the interior and exterior of the facility."

Work on the court house started in the spring of 2009 and will wrap up this month when the landscaping is complete. Court Services were temporarily relocated to the Auburn Pepper building during the renovations, but will move back to the court house now that the renovations are complete.

The work included: upgrades to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, installation of an elevator, sealing and repair of the foundation, repointing of masonry, rebuilding of the parapet wall and installation of a new roof. The driveways, parking lots and walkways were repaved, new interior finishes were undertaken, existing windows were refurbished and double pane storm windows were installed. A new fountain was installed on the front lawn of the facility and the landscaping will be completed this spring.

"Our staff are certainly looking forward to coming back to work at this historic facility in June," Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said. "This building is truly a Weyburn landmark, and has met the needs of the justice system for many years. Thanks to these renovations, it will continue to meet our needs for many more years to come."

Government Services owns the building, and the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General is the tenant who occupies the facility. The total budget for the upgrades is $8.4 million. The project was awarded through a Request for Proposals to CCR Construction.

The court house was built in 1928 and was designed by Provincial Architect Maurice Sharon. The first sitting at the Weyburn Court House was on January 22, 1929. The building was designated a Provincial Heritage Site on February 15, 1988.
