Government officials move closer to Supreme Court decision

  • Comment

A decision on which practice will oversee the transformation of London's Middlesex Guildhall into the new Supreme Court, one of Britain's most high-profile construction projects, will be made within the month.

It is understood that officials at the Department for Constitutional Affairs (DCA) have finished interviewing for engineers and architects. One of the offices known to be on the shortlist is Feilden & Mawson, a practice that is already signed up to the DCA's approved list of firms.

The winning practice will work with an engineer and a contractor on the project, in a form of public-private partnership. The Grade Ilisted Guildhall is opposite the Houses of Parliament on Parliament Square, and the brief is understood to include a series of hearing rooms but no formal courts.

However, it is also understood that several heritage organisations are determined to ensure that the conversion is 'extremely sensitive'.
