Metals contractor added to new Dorset Police HQ build

A FIRM has been selected to create parts of Dorset Police’s new headquarters at Winfrith.

Cardiff-based fabricator, Dudley’s Aluminium, will work on various aspects of the development, which includes a 30,000sq ft, three-story office building.

The project is the third police headquarters 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.

The headquarters is 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, as well as 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.”

Work on the state-of-the-art new building is set to begin before the end of the year.
