CARDIFF-based fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium will support the creation of a new headquarters for Dorset Police at the force’s Winfrith site.
The project is the third police headquarters that the fabricator has worked on in three years, having successfully completed Gwent Police’s headquarters in Cwmbran and South Wales Police’s headquarters in Bridgend.
Dudley’s will be teaming up with Willmott Dixon Construction Limited for the project which will include a 30,000 square foot, three-storey Grade A office building. The design will incorporate a contemporary mixture of glazed curtain walling and facing brickwork.
The headquarters is also being designed to the BREEAM ‘Very Good’ sustainability standard and will include air source heat pumps and an array of photovoltaic panels.
Dudley’s will install Metal Technology System capped curtain walling, doors, and manual and automatic windows, in addition to automatic entrance doors.
Colin Shorney, Managing Director of Dudley’s Aluminium, said: “We are excited to be working with Willmott Dixon to transform Dorset Police’s headquarters, providing a high-quality work environment for those serving in the force and benefiting the wider community.”
