Background:

The National Supreme Court of Libya, an imposing £70m, Travertine-clad structure, has been seismically designed by British Engineers to withstand the earthquakes prevalent in the region. MNP developed the structural design as part of the team working for Libya’s Organisation for Development of Administrative Centres (ODAC), which is responsible for most of the country’s public building work.


Four courtrooms are clearly visible from the outside as features of the structure, and are to be made from solid, reinforced concrete. There will be two floors below ground level, constructed close to adjacent buildings. Engineers worked closely with the Libyan construction management team for several months to assess the site, ground conditions and to complete the earthquake assessments and structural designs.
