The building is designed to ensure the justice system is accessible, modern and fit-for-purpose. As well as providing modern court and tribunals facilities, a range of justice and support organisations will be based in the centre providing integrated facilities for victims, witnesses, litigants and other users. The building includes video link facilities for young and vulnerable people.

Inverness Justice Centre was procured through Scape Group’s National Major Works framework (now superseded by Major Works Scotland), part of the Scape National Construction framework

It is being constructed by Robertson Northern in partnership with Willmott Dixon.

The new Inverness Justice Centre will give the people of the Highlands access to modern facilities and support all in the same place, which will have a positive impact on local communities.

Combined facilities under one roof

Organisations and services supported in the justice centre include:

In addition to the direct justice benefits, the location of the justice centre means that Inverness Castle – the current home of the courts will transfer to the Highland Council when vacant, enabling a long-term desire for its use as a major tourism attraction in Inverness.

The key to the successful delivery of this landmark development has been the collaboration with Robertson and a real focus on delivery.

– Craig McConnell, Currie & Brown, Project Manager for Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service
