“Paragon proposed and delivered a contemporary and modern Law Court as part of a package of design and build work delivered over the Summer of 2014. The existing Law Court was relocated to a smaller space within the existing campus and Paragon successfully managed to create, through good design a facility that is stunning and fit for purpose. It has been greatly received by both Students and teaching staff.”
