The building that encapsulates it, specifically Block 14 during Beach Road Camp era housed a Subordinate Military Court as well as the Higher Military Court of Appeal and contained within its premises a courtroom, a deliberation room, witness rooms, holding cells and various offices for the court staff and military prosecutors.
