Demolition of the 1980s Shepparton Law Courts building started yesterday, with contractors tearing it down piece by piece.
The works will see the development of a landscaped forecourt and the refurbishment of the 1930s courthouse, into a specialist family violence court.
With its prominent corner position, the new five-story law courts building will engage the old court on High St by way of a public plaza, serving the courts’ staff and visitors.
The $73 million Shepparton Law Courts will form a regional headquarters for the Hume/Goulburn region to complete the major precinct.
The works are due to be completed in October.
