Our vision for a landmark civic development on Fleet Street
This ambitious project will deliver a new, purpose-built 18-courtroom legal facility and a cutting-edge police headquarters equipped to combat fraud and economic crime across the UK.
Built to the highest modern standards when it comes to accessibility and sustainability, the Fleet Street Estate project will open up and improve justice for all and be a significant addition to the already exemplar legal capabilities of the UK.
