Willmott Dixon has secured a contract to redevelop the existing headquarters building of Hertfordshire Constabulary in Stanborough, England, UK.
The project, worth £55m ($69.43m), has been commissioned by the police and crime commissioner for Hertfordshire.
Procured through the SCAPE Construction framework, the project is designed to reduce the long-term running costs of the Stanborough estate.
SCAPE group chief executive Mark Robinson said: “The redevelopment of the headquarters of Hertfordshire Constabulary will provide a considerable boost to policing services in the area, bringing positive change and benefits to the local community.”
It involves the demolition of 11 buildings from the 1960s to create a new, sustainable working environment for more than 600 staff.
The updated 9,000m² headquarters will incorporate agile workspaces to support staff well-being and adapt to modern policing methods.
