Court Services Victoria provides all the facilities and administrative services necessary to support all the Courts in the State and VCAT. It has an active program to improve and update existing court facilities and build new ones.
The existing guidelines that inform the design of courts were lengthy and complex and needed updating to embrace significant changes to regulations and to meet society's expectations of the justice system.
We worked with senior staff to develop a clear Asset Design Framework that could be applied across all jurisdictions, and to identify a clear set of Detailed Design Standards. These will assist planners, architects, project managers and other consultants and staff involved in the design and development process.
