COMUNIDAD AUTONOMA DE MADRID
The project concerns the Madrid City of Justice that will integrate in one single place all judicial bodies and services that are under the competences of the Autonomous Region of Madrid (Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid) and will constitute the largest single site dedicated to justice in Europe.
The main objective of the project is to improve the quality of the public service of the Administration of Justice, also pursuing the following objectives:
-Centralise the judicial buildings in the same headquarters, solving the space deficit and the aging of some of the current buildings
-Generate reserve spaces, in order to cater for future extensions of the judicial administration in Madrid
-Improve the effectiveness and functioning of the judicial bodies, eliminating the reduction in the operability of the Administration of Justice derived from the dispersion of the judicial offices
-Provide modern and functional infrastructures to the judicial bodies of Madrid, so legal officers can carry out their activities with the best possible quality parameters
-Protect victims of crimes and the privacy of users, implementing spaces for specific attention and separation of circulations between detainees, officials and the public
-Creation of fully accessible judicial infrastructure, without architectural barriers and with the implementation of the necessary measures to achieve universal accessibility in judicial buildings, which allows effective access to justice for all persons with disabilities, under equal conditions as the rest of the users of this essential public service
-Optimise resources by reducing the costs associated with the lease of the buildings, the maintenance and upkeep of the facilities, as well as the costs associated with common services, through the configuration of a single project that enables the achievement of efficiency gains by managing all the lifecycle costs of a single infrastructure
-Contribute to achieving the objectives of budgetary stability or financial sustainability, promoting in the long term a reduction in costs derived from the operational functioning of the service
