Our project team enhanced King’s Lynn Police Station across three phases of works. Following the demolition of the rear of the station, we installed a two storey temporary accommodation block for 150 staff.
These enabling works then released the main hub for the team to undertake the major refurbishment, remodelling and extension works. This included the construction of a new atrium, as well as offices, changing, social and response rooms.
Externally the team delivered vehicle maintenance workshops and a new car park for staff and response vehicles.
The team also created a new staircase, storage facilities, lift shaft and internal refurbishment works. We also constructed several workshops for storage maintenance of police vehicles, as well as several new bicycle shelters.
Due to the status of the existing police station, Morgan Sindall carefully installed new windows in keeping with the original design and main façade of the building. We also restored the original clock tower, bringing it back into use.
The team donated a week of their time and all the materials to revitalise a local nursery opposite the police station.
The colleagues installed a tipi in the sensory garden, refurbished a model train and built a special toy car centre for the children.
10 HNC Construction students from the College of West Anglia attended the project to learn about the build. Our on-site STEM Ambassador also presented on careers available in construction and the next steps.
We also hosted 20 secondary school students from Springwood High School, who regularly visited to learn about the project as part of the CREST Bronze Award, an award developed by the Construction Industry Training Board linking studies to construction.
