Willmott Dixon has scooped a £24m contract with Lancashire Constabulary to build its new headquarters in Blackpool.
Works will be procured under Scape’s National Major Works framework, for which Willmott Dixon has been the sole contractor since it was procured in 2005.
Funding for the scheme, which will replace the existing HQ in the same town, will be issued under the police and crime commissioner’s capital programme.
An investigations hub, 42 custody cells and a local policing and immediate response team base will be created.
There will be opportunities for local suppliers to be involved in the project, according to Lancashire police and crime commissioner Clive Grunshaw.
In September, Willmott Dixon launched pre-designed police prison cells that were designed in partnership with Canadian architect NORR.
The CODE range includes three designs: Alpha (providing up to 28 cells); Bravo (offering up to 36 cells) and Charlie (for more than 36 cells).
The company has built more than 50 cell custody suites for police forces in South Yorkshire, south Wales, Newcastle and West Midlands.
