North Tyneside Police Headquarters

The £27 million command headquarters for Northumbria Police in North Tyneside is an impressive BREEAM Excellent rated building and we were delighted to be chosen to supply specialist joinery solutions to the main contractor.

Our team manufactured the main reception desk for the buildings huge glazed concourse incorporating curved sections of anti-ballistic glazed screens. We also created the innovative , brightly coloured ‘Pods’ that act as break-out areas on each of the building’s three floors.

Perhaps our most impressive contribution to this project is the charge desk that forms the operational hub for the custody suite of 40 cells; one of the most innovative in the country. The design was developed into a full scale mock-up to ensure the client’s requirements – that from the operational hub, sight lines were maximised to ensure custody safety and security in all areas, were fully met before manufacture was finalised. Over recent years we have manufactured a number of these specialist pieces for police forces across the country.
