Contract Value: £22 million

Modern methods of policing and the varied quality, standard and size of the existing custody facilities within the County has significantly impacted on the efficiency of the region’s Custody Service.

This state of the art Police Custody & Foresnsic Hub will house all of Durham Constabulary's detainees in modern safe cell accommodation alongside a centralised office space for the force, as wells as designated forensics & CSI stores.

A more public/front of house area and office accommodation will be housed in a 2-storey section towards the front of the building, with plant and service provision included in designated plant room areas above the cells. An independent ancillary store, CSI store and energy centre will also be provided on the site.

A hybrid steel and pre-cast concrete structural solution will be adopted for the custody building.
