Operating since 1963, the Supreme Court building had served the ACT well for almost 50 years, but needed significant redevelopment to meet existing and future demands, especially advances in technology. In 2011, the ACT Government engaged a consultant team to develop a Detailed Business Case for redevelopment of the facility including preparation of concept designs and associated cost estimates. Following completion of this initial work, the Government required that an independent peer review be undertaken along with further value management work and refinement of the Business Case so that it would be ready to be submitted in the 2013-14 budget cycle for ACT Treasury and Parliamentary approval.
Xact was engaged to assemble and lead a multidisciplinary consultant team which undertook the peer review and value management process. This involved reviewing all existing design documentation (i.e. architectural, building services, urban design and engineering services) as well as assessing compliance with the Conservation Management Plan for the heritage listed site.
