Willmott Dixon has been given the green light to start work later this year on a new GBP 20 million building to house Humberside Police’s control centre and other specialist services, after the company agreed a contract and the scheme received planning approval. The 107,000 square foot, three-storey operational support building, which will be constructed next to the force’s existing facility at Melton West Business Park near Hull, will accommodate over 500 staff and contain a new control room handling all telephone calls and public contact. It will also house specialist units such as major crime investigation to free up space in other buildings to accommodate the uplift in police officers which has increased by around 500 since 2016.

The development is a joint project between Humberside Police Force and Melton West landowners and developers Wykeland Group, supported by planning consultants DLP and designed by Bond Bryan architects. The design includes sustainable features such as energy efficient heating and lighting systems, plus use of environmentally-friendly materials and facilities to encourage staff to cycle to and from work.

Procured via Major Works England and Northern Ireland, a part of the Scape National Construction framework, it is scheduled for completion and opening in 2022.
