Pace, one of the region's leading architecture and engineering practices, has announced the completion of the Hawally Court Complex in Kuwait.
A new judicial landmark, Hawally Court Complex was recently completed for The Ministry of Justice (MOJ). It is considered the latest edition of the smart courts being built in Kuwait.
The Ministry of Public Works (MPW) collaborated with leading regional multidisciplinary firm, Pace, to undertake the design and construction supervision for the new Hawally Courts Complex.
The multi-purpose smart building stands tall 150 m above ground level on a site area of 9,000 sq m, said the statement from Pace.
Providing an array of court-related services to its occupants, the tower spans a built-up area of 146,000 sq m, comprising 52 courts, which includes 40 supreme courts, 12 appeal courts and offices that can accommodate 1,334 employees, it stated.
Elaborating further, Pace CEO Tarek Shuaib said: "The new complex, which currently stands as the tallest and one of the largest buildings in Hawally area, is located within its commercial and administrative district."
"It aims to provide a larger and more modernised facility in order accommodate the increasing number of users in Hawally governorate, in addition to minimising congestions at the temporarily existing district court building until it is fully replaced," he stated.
The complex’s multi-levelled car park consists of five floors with three basements and a mezzanine, accommodating 1,200 cars.
Secure parking spaces are separated from public parking and include 53 parking spaces for judges, 50 for general prosecutors and 40 VIP parking spaces.
The new Hawally Courts Complex is also equipped with smart and modern systems, as well as clean energy systems that save on electrical energy consumption, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
