Oxford Architects and Cheltenham Ladies' College go head-to-head in court battle

  • Comment
Oxford Architects is embroiled in a High Court tussle with Cheltenham Ladies' College over unpaid fees.

The Technology and Construction Court claim is thought to relate to a £3 million art and technology building completed in 1999.

The project, which replaced a redundant boarding house, comprises five floors of art studios, workshops and food technology laboratories.

The building won a Cheltenham Civic Trust Award in March 2000.

Oxford Architects' brief also included a full accommodation and curriculum audit carried out in 1994.

The practice hit the headlines at the beginning of the year when its £18 million animal-research facility at Oxford University was dogged by threats from animal rights extremists.

Property belonging to Oxford Architects was reportedly vandalised, and construction was halted after activists targeted contractor Montpellier.
