BTP completes work at Priory Court in Birmingham

BTP has just completed work on a large court house scheme in the heart of Birmingham city centre.

We were appointed as lead designer and architect to provide an additional 12 hearing rooms, more modern public space and 19 new rooms for the judiciary at Priory Court by ISG.

The scheme is part of BTP’s ongoing work with national fit-out and refurbishment contractor ISG.

Priory Court is part of a bigger project by the Ministry of Justice to bring together all of Birmingham’s courts and tribunals for the first time under the Government’s wider £1 billion reform and modernisation of the justice system.

Rod Hook, Contracts Manager at ISG said: “BTP provide first-class architectural services and the completion of Priory Court to such high standards is testament to that. We are delighted to be working with them on several other projects to improve court buildings across the country.”

Simon Dennis, Project Architect and Associate at BTP said: “We have worked in partnership with ISG to fulfil the brief, creating high quality modern hearing rooms and judicial accommodation while overcoming the challenges of working inside an operational court building.”

Regional Tribunal Judge Rhead said: “The hearing rooms and judicial accommodation are an excellent example of a modern “fit for purpose” justice centre.”

The architectural firm continues to work successfully with ISG on a number of Court Reform Projects of the Ministry of Justice’s Custodial estate across England. Works are currently ongoing at Swindon Magistrates and Combined Courts and at the Grade I listed HMP Hewell Grange where BTP have just secured consent for a major Mechanical and Electrical Infrastructure replacement project.

BTP are a highly skilled team of architects and design professionals based outside Manchester with a strong track record over the past 70 years in a range of architectural fields.
