Barrow Police Station

CLEINT: Thomas Armstrong Construction

SERVICE: Structural Engineering

Westlakes were engaged by Thomas Armstrong Construction to provide Civil and Structural Engineering services for this new build Police Station on a post-industrial site in Barrow-In-Furness.

The development provides office and administrative facilities for Cumbria Constabulary contained within the main, three storey building. A central, full height atrium is included providing natural light and the front façade is fully glazed giving views over the Walney Channel.

Structure was provided as a steel frame, as an economic means of creating the curved roof and atrium profiles and use of long span precast concrete floor units helped to create open and flexible internal spaces.

To the rear of the main building, a new, single storey Custody Suite has been constructed, providing an enclosed vehicle dock, 18 cells and associated administration areas. The development also included new garage and vehicle maintenance workshops and significant areas of external parking.
