Justice Centre provides 47 courtrooms in a sustainable 16-storey building, an 11-storey atrium and a spectacular 60m × 60m glass facade along the western edge. The elegant court complex is an example of an innovative and well-executed sustainable design. The natural ventilation system is designed to maximize free cooling potential and comfort in mid-season. The building's "file drawers" create the illusion that the structure is rather unbalanced. In fact, the building firmly and stably stands on its foundation: the strongest hurricane just cut off a strip of aluminum from the roof of the building. Manchester Civil Justice Centre has won a long list of awards for its outstanding sustainability credentials, innovative engineering design and striking architecture.
