The scaffolding surrounding the Moose Jaw Court House is not part of the project to repair the building's ceiling following a collapse several months ago.
"There is additional work being done on the building right now, as part of its regular phase of life," said Andre LaBerge, acting executive director of property management with the province. "We had the cornices inspected and they required some repairs. This is separate from the ceiling collapse."
As for repairs on the ceiling, LaBerge said that process remains in the design phase.
"We are really working with the heritage branch to ensure the building is brought back to its original design. … We want to make sure everyone is pleased," he said.
Though there is no firm deadline on when construction is anticipated to begin, LaBerge said the province is "anticipating to start later this fall."
The Times-Herald will continue to provide updates as work progresses.
