Liskeard Police Station, Cornwall

Project Description

£2m replacement building after the previous building reached the end of it’s economic life

Demolition of the existing building allowed room to be created for the new build, car parking and access requirements

The new facilities boost the welfare and morale of staff and officers and help them better serve local communities

The new station is home for over 70 officers and staff whose duties range from community policing, response, tri-service, Special Constables and CID

A key location for operations across South East Cornwall, the new services offer 24 hours a day operation

A major boost to Cornwall’s policing, delivering modern capabilities in a state-of-the-art, sustainable building

Project Involvement

MEP design from concept through to detailed design working closely with Architect, Structures and the client

Provided concept advise on the services strategy and thermal modelling to ensure the clients aspiration for a passive design
was met

Worked closely with the client to delivery a cost effective solution whilst providing an energy efficient strategy to go far beyond building regulation Part L minimum standards

Assisted with the construction phase providing site inspections and guidance throughout up to and including handover

Project Benefits

The decision to rebuild on the existing site was made due to existing co-location with Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety Service and South West Ambulance Foundation Trust

All three services can further commit to maximise opportunities that the new facility will bring, meeting their operational requirements and to improve services to partners and members of the public in Liskeard

The new building helps with Devon and Cornwall Police’s main aims, to reduce the carbon usage of the force while redesigning new buildings in a more cost effective way making better use of
space and greener materials
