Project Description

Work on Nottingham Magistrates’ Court included the design and construction of additional court facilities and the refurbishment of existing offices. Procured through the Ministry of Justice Strategic Alliance Agreement, the existing facility operates as a Magistrates’ Court alongside the former parcel office. The works included the strategic phasing of the project to suit the client’s requirement to keep the surrounding courts in use. The project team had to overcome a number of complications linked to the requirement to remove an existing structural wall which led to the re-programming of all 4 phases of the works. Throughout the project close liaison was kept with the Ministry of Justice representatives to ensure smooth closing down and re-opening of the court facilities and all works were undertaken from ‘back of house’ facilities with restricted access and egress.


"The project team was managed very effectively by the Shaylor Group team. The relationship developed between HMCTS and the delivery team helped ensure the transition to a modern Justice Centre providing facilities for all jurisdictions. The requirement to continue to maintain our operations at Nottingham during delivery of the project presented a number of significant challenges to the Shaylor Group team which they were able to overcome through the close co-operation developed between the project team and HMCTS. HMCTS are very satisfied with the transformation."
