Europe’s first eco mosque will be based in Cambridge and is due to be completed by November 2018. It will also be the highest value mosque in Europe, worth approximately £24 million when finished.
Ashtons’ Commercial Property Partner Charles Webb acted for the Muslim Academic Trust in the original purchase of the land and then then moved to Cambridge Mosque Trust, who are the current owners. The Construction Associate was Sarah Duncan who assisted CMT Design and Build Limited in drafting the development agreement, warranties, appointments, and building contract, so that they see the first phase of the project completed.
“We were delighted to work on such a prestigious and unique development which involved a wide cross section of professionals and disciplines. We are now looking forward to seeing the result of the project team’s hard work when the Mosque opens in November,” said Sarah Duncan.
Corporate and Commercial Associate Mark Watson also helped Charles and Sarah deal with the board minutes and notifications which were necessary for both Cambridge Mosque Trust and CMT Design and Build Limited.
Tim Winter, Chair of the Cambridge Mosque Trust also added: “This has been a complex multinational project involving many contractors and stakeholders, and we have been delighted by the dedication and astuteness with which Ashtons have supported our various legal needs”.
