Humberside Divisional Police Headquarters – Joint winner of the Scala Civic Building of the Year 2013
We are delighted that this project was voted joint winner of the Civic Building of the year in 2013.
Scala is collaborative organisation of Public Sector Architects and Associated professionals, committed to assisting its members in achieving the highest possible standards and to promote construction and architecture in local Authorities.
This project, designed by Jacobs UK Limited, provides new Headquarters, custody suite and storage facility for Humberside Police. The 9,810m2 headquarters building, finished with our Senses Aluminium Cladding, offers flexible office space arranged around a four-storey toplit and naturally ventilated atrium space which acts as a core circulation space throughout the building.
The custody and storage facilities with dedicated plant buildings are arranged behind a screen-wall incorporating an artist-designed patterned glazed block wall forming an attractive public plaza to the entrance elevation.
The building is BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rated and includes solar and wind-power generation together with a bio-mass boiler. An attenuation basin has been formed adjacent to the café space and provides an external amenity.
