- The four-storey courthouse will incorporate six court rooms surrounding a central atrium and indoor viewing promenade for visitors, offices as well as a secured area for convicts.
- Energy efficiency, security and user comfort are fundamental aspects of the PPP development.
- The building's simple quadratic shape with a vertical façade is a modern interpretation of the archetype of a traditional courthouse and agrees with the demanding duties of the court. The façades’ transparency and the public square aim to symbolise civilians’ expectations of its establishment.
The unique nature of this PPP development has meant that it was crucial for the contracting authority to seek independent advice in order to make well-informed design and investment decisions. With the juxtaposition between the courthouse’s public spaces and protected areas, security and flow management have been particular areas of concern since the project’s conception.
Mott MacDonald is providing the contracting authority with fully independent advice on all technical and contractual matters – helping ensure that the most appropriate course of action is taken by the right party at the right time. We’ve also developed quality control monitoring tools to check that all process and components are adequately accounted for – enabling the operational phase to be prepared in the best way possible for future users.
Mott MacDonald’s global knowledge and extensive track record of PPPs has been invaluable in driving this project forward to time and budget.
