Miller wins upgrade contract for 19 Northern courts

Miller Construction has won two Ministry of Justice framework packages for 19 courts in Durham, Cleveland and Northumbria, and Yorkshire.

The packages, through the Strategic Alliance Agreement Framework for the North, cover 19 courts and include electrical infrastructure upgrades, building management system replacements, new boiler plant room equipment and access lifts.

Replacement glazing and new court seating will also feature.

Miller Construction chief executive Chris Webster said:“We are delighted to have secured additional packages through this important framework.

“These are significant contracts for us and quickly follow on from our appointment at Manchester Crown Court, which was also the first contract let on the framework. 

“We are committed to framework working, and look forward to delivering these works to the high standards, that we consistently deliver and, that our clients expect from us.”

All of the courts will remain operational through the works, which are programmed to maximise efficiencies and ensure minimum disruption.

Chris Webster continued: “Justice was one of our emerging markets throughout 2012 and I am delighted we are broadening our exposure to the market through the addition of contracts that will see us build on our experience in this area.”

Works are expected to commence in January 2013.
