Work to convert the Middlesex Guildhall in Parliament Square for use as the UK’s new Supreme Court has reached the final stages.
The Ministry of Justice appointed Kier Property to develop the scheme, along with its specialist sister company Kier Wallis as contractor. Work began in June 2007.
Many of the original features and fittings have been retained – including ornate ceilings that were hidden away as part of remodelling works in the 1980s – to restore the building to its original grandeur.
Refurbishment of the 70,000 sq ft structure, built between in the early part of the 20th century, included the extensive repair and cleaning of its ornate neo gothic stone façade, complete roof renewal and the formation of a new library and a new court.
