Laganside Courts, Belfast

A civic institution, which also acts as a catalyst for urban regeneration.

Hurd Rolland were the lead design and architectural consultants for this project, covering the design, construction, finance and facilities management of a new sixteen-court complex located in the city centre adjacent to the Royal Courts of Justice.

The new court building includes six crown courts, four county courts and six magistrates’ courts, providing a new landmark building in the regeneration area of Laganside and replacing existing court buildings in Belfast. The complex received recognition for the quality of its accommodation in the PFI 2000 awards and the RSUA Design Award Building of the Year 2002, which quoted:

“This is a building that actually makes you feel good about Belfast’s future – open, honest and optimistic.”
