The Hurd Rolland Partnership has completed its £23 million Laganside Courts Complex in Belfast, which it claims are the first law courts to be completed under the Private Finance Initiative.
The Manchester-based practice has designed the 16,257m 2project in a prominent position in the Laganside redevelopment area of Belfast.
The two-year construction project won the 'Accommodation' category in the 2000 annual PFI awards, organised by the PFI index, and the architect is anticipating further gongs this year as one of the first PFI courts complexes to reach completion.
'The multi-storey complex combines contemporary design with a civic feel to give an air of modernity and relevant civic presence, ' said HRP project partner Jim Stevenson. (incl images)
