Birmingham courts project to start in 2009

Work will start before the end of next year on Birmingham's new £81 million magistrates' courts project.


The 24 courtroom development, to be built on Masshouse Lane, will replace the city’s existing magistrates courts.

A prior information notice published today (20 February) in the Official Journal says that procurement for the main contract will begin in October/November as a design and build deal.

The Ministry of Justice will separately appoint a design team to take the project to RIBA stage D and E before being novated across to the contractor.

Construction is scheduled to start in December next year, for completion by August 2012.

The project is one of a series of six courts projects, with a combined value of up to £400 million, announced by the Ministry of Justice last year.

The other projects are in Aylesbury, Bolton, Liverpool, Salford and Sunderland.
