Saint John Law Courts

Saint John Law Courts: a prestigious contract for Beaubois in New Brunswick

The Beaubois signature is to be found on all the architectural woodwork elements of the prestigious new Saint John Law Courts building, part of the initiative that is bringing new life to the core of the oldest municipality in Canada.

This high-security building has six stories and houses 13 courtrooms, office space for the public prosecutors, court and sheriff services, and the Department of Public Safety.

The talent of the Beaubois team is seen in each courtroom: the judge's bench, witness stand, jury box, lawyers' tables, public seating, wall panels and doors. Of particular note are edge bandings darker than the maple veneer they frame. Crafted from hardwood, of a different colour and a thickness that reach 5mm, these rarely used bandings enhance the solidity and durability of the panels.

Beyond the courtrooms, Beaubois' special touch is in evidence throughout the building, including the reception and public areas.

A green building

The building was designed to meet the criteria for LEED Silver certification. Having delivered numerous LEED projects and more than fifty courthouses in Canada and the United States, Beaubois was the ideal partner to carry out this major project within a very tight schedule.

Set on a slope, the building seems to be stepping back to get a better footing to climb the hill. Its architecture calls to mind the layers of buildings that give uptown Saint John its distinctive appearance. Its fenestration and the variety and articulation of its exterior finishes exude an air of organization and integrate seamlessly into the urban fabric of this part of New Brunswick's largest city. A beautiful addition whose architectural woodwork proudly bears the Beaubois signature.
