The new three-storey building is almost complete, and staff begin the move across next week.
The first court sitting in the building will be on 14 February and all the sittings are expected to be held there by the end of next month.
Magistrate’s Court Greffier David Le Heuzé said the new court was a landmark building for the west side of town.
‘We will have a fully secure, semi-secure and open court facility to cater for the full range of cases seen within the Jersey court systems, adequate witness waiting area and proper separation of witnesses,’ he said.
Mr Le Heuzé added that the building was expected to come in within deadline and within the final budget, although he declined to reveal the final price tag.
Contractors Hacquoil and Cook started work on the building in 2003, with the Bailiff, Sir Philip Bailhache, starting the first dig on the 150th anniversary of the first sitting of the Magistrate’s Court.
At the moment court sittings are split between the Magistrate’s Court – formerly the Police Court – in the Town Hall building and a second courtroom and Greffe offices on the third floor of Cyril Le Marquand House.
