The builders encountered problems during the restoration of the Middlesex Guildhall where the new Court will sit. Water had seeped in to the structural steelwork, which then rusted. (The repairs cost an additional £2 million.)
I was going to discuss the new complex a little, but in addition to the builder’s website, Irish blog cearta.ie already has a good post linking to news articles on it. Interestingly, in a similar theme to Dr Manhattan’s post about using video technology, Eoin O’Dell comments that the new Court will permit filming — a first for UK courts!
