ADW Johnson was recently engaged by Suters Architects to undertake the planning tasks associated with lodgement of a Crown DA for a regional court house in Armidale on behalf of Department of Justice and Attorney General. The project has a value of approximately $11 million and involves construction of a new two storey 3000 square metre court house in Moore Street, Armidale to replace the existing heritage listed court house. The application was lodged with Armidale Council in late April 2011 and was recently approved by the Joint Regional Planning Panel. The quick turnaround time was due to the cooperation between the Project Manager Thinc Projects, Suters Architects, ADW Johnson and Armidale Council, who provided excellent pre-lodgement advice, an efficient assessment of the application and quick turnaround of draft conditions.
