With Cambridge City Centre having a major facelift, there was a need to relocate the Magistrates Court to just outside the City with Trumpington being the ideal location. Working in partnership with Gleeds, Premier came up with a replica of the existing facilities with Premier acting as principle contractor for the project which included interface between the various specialist contractors, the end user, consultants, Department of Constitutional Affairs, architect and client was the key to the success.
The building itself included 4 Courts with 3.1m internal ceiling heights, Magistrates Retiring Chambers, Custody Suites, Van dock, Staff Offices, Interview Rooms and Public Areas. All of which had to achieve different levels of government performance criteria.
In addition Premier completed all external works consisting of foundations, car parking area, secure fencing and gates, cycle stands, foul and surface drainage, and the provision of ducting for specialist contractors.
