Jahra (Kuwait) | Barcol-Air
The architectural language used for the Jahra and Farwaniya Courts Complex is aimed at reflecting both the strength and transparency of the Kuwait justice system. The two high rise court buildings consist of 80 courtrooms each, administrative and governmental offices, 23 conference rooms, cafes and associated public spaces. Large state of the art courts totaling 200 square meters include natural illumination using clerestory windows and these are augmented by the natural light that enters via the large patterned glass façade that enables the public lobbies to be filled with light. A thorough study of both European and American court standards was carried out by the project team prior to beginning the design and the best aspects of the findings were incorporated into the project.
Al Jahra Court Complex was completely developed with BIM modelling. This model includes all relevant information, such as drawings, calculations, specifications, materials lists and planning. This contributed to an effective development, management and installation process, which resulted in cost savings and quality.
Barcol-Air having all of its product available as a BIM/REVIT model, was elected to provide the complete VAV system.
