Wynyard-Courthouse

The Wynyard Courthouse was designed by Maurice Sharon, an architect who designed nine courthouses in Saskatchewan from 1916 – 1930. Sharon designed the Wynyard Courthouse by following the Colonial Revival Style which features a pitched roof and a central cupola with attic ventilation; the exterior includes brick cladding trimmed with stone, rain gutters integrated with projecting metal cornices. These buildings featured pitched roofs, rain gutters integrated with projecting metal cornices, central cupola with attic ventilation, and brick cladding trimmed with stone (source).

Project Scope: The scope of this project incorporated barrier free washrooms and elevator access, as well as a new mechanical HVAC System and electrical upgrades. The interior aesthetics improved dramatically through renovations to lighting fixtures, floor surfacing, as well as repainting a number of walls to preserve the building’s historic value.
