Ashtons advises on Cambridge eco mosque
Law firm Ashtons Legal has advised on the development of Europe’s first eco mosque, based in Cambridge, which is due for completion by November. It will also be the highest value mosque in Europe, worth around £24 million.
Ashtons’ Commercial Property partner Charles Webb acted for the Muslim Academic Trust in the original purchase of the land and latterly for the Cambridge Mosque Trust who are the current owners.
Construction associate Sarah Duncan helped CMT Design and Build Limited draft the development agreement, building contract, warranties and appointments to bring the project to fruition and see the first phase of the development completed.
Webb and Duncan also had input from Corporate and Commercial associate Mark Watson who dealt with the board minutes and notifications necessary for both Cambridge Mosque Trust and CMT.
Tim Winter, chair of the Cambridge Mosque Trust added: “This has been a complex multinational project involving many contractors and stakeholders.”
