DCM to build Birmingham court
Denton Corker Marshall has been appointed by HM Courts Service to design a new magistrates’ court for Birmingham. The 20,000sq m building, in the centre of the city, will house 24 courts over 15 storeys.
DCM’s London director Stephen Quinlan said: “We very much look forward to working with HMCS again following our successful relationship on Manchester’s Civil Justice Centre.”
The Melbourne-based practice won the 2007 Royal Australian Institute of Architects’ Jørn Utzon award for international architecture for the Manchester scheme, its first built project in the UK.
