Contractor selected for major new Humberside Police Force facility

Willmott Dixon has been chosen by Humberside Police Force and developer Wykeland Group to build a major police facility that will house over 500 people.

Plans for the £20 million three-storey operational support building at Wykeland’s Melton West business park, west of Hull, have been submitted to East Riding of Yorkshire Council and if approved, construction by Willmott Dixon is expected to start in the third quarter of 2020.

The Humberside Police Force development, called Melton 2, will provide 107,000 square foot of accommodation for around 535 staff from the force’s Operational Support Services and is sited next to an existing facility built in 2014, Melton 1, which is home to specialist teams and support staff.

Procured via Major Works England and Northern Ireland, a part of the Scape National Construction framework, Willmott Dixon is working with Bond Bryan architects to take the plans through planning and into construction.

In conjunction with the existing centre, Melton 2 will provide tailored facilities for operations and support staff, supporting greater functional efficiency. The proposed scheme also aims to improve the quality of work and training environments for Humberside Police personnel. It will be a significant new addition to Melton West, which already has more than 800,000 square foot of manufacturing, warehouse and office space.

Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Keith Hunter: “The new development at Melton will, if approved, allow Humberside Police to bring together a number of specialist crime investigation functions, some of which deal with the most serious crimes and vulnerable victims, and provide a new, state of the art force control room which will continue the great progress made in public contact over the last few years.”

Anthony Dillon, Manager Director at Willmott Dixon, said: “We are delighted to be creating an important new hub for Humberside Police. It’s going to provide a smart, efficient environment for the force to deliver policing across the region for many generations to come.”
