Newport Magistrates' Court has been shortlisted for a prestigious British Council for Offices Award following submission at the end of 2013. The judges are due to visit the project this month, with the winners being announced at the awards ceremony in May 2014. Spread over three floors, with a magnificent plate glass entrance, the new court has been designed to provide a replacement for outdated, existing Magistrates' facilities. Feilden+Mawson were lead consultant and executive architects on the team for a two stage Design and Build, taking over the scheme at planning from concept architects HOK. The new building is stylish and spacious, providing a secure and effective working environment and centre of justice for the city of Newport.
