Bringing court and support services under the one roof

The new facility brings court and support services under the one roof to provide a more integrated and efficient justice system.

Key facts

  • £1 million saved through value engineering.
  • Precast concrete columns for intricate facade created offsite to save time on build.
  • £9 million social value achieved through our community development work.
  • 99.94% of site waste diverted from landfill.
The key to the successful delivery of this landmark development has been the collaboration with Robertson and a real focus on delivery.
