Willmott Dixon has added to its blue light portfolio after its Interiors division secured projects worth £18 million to refurbish existing Metropolitan Police stations in Peckham, Ilford, Colindale and Brixton.
The company’s specialist framework team secured the projects as part the Metropolitan Police’s Minor and Intermediate Works Framework, which is the procurement vehicle for the force to appoint contractors for projects ranging from £500k-£10 million in value to update, modernise and rationalise its existing estate, creating better energy efficiency and working environments.
The company has secured 12 projects via the framework, which include the recently completed Marlowe House in Sidcup, where the team refurbished three floors of the 14-storey building to create a modern working environment for up to 2,000 people.
Graham Shaw, Managing Director for Willmott Dixon Interiors said: “We are delighted to be continuing our work with the Metropolitan Police, our experienced teams understand the sensitivity required when delivering secure accommodation projects and it is a pleasure to be making such a positive difference to the Met’s working environment.”
Willmott Dixon has a strong track record in the blue light sector. It recently created a new state-of-the-art custody centre and operational hub for Devon and Cornwall Constabulary in Exeter as well as Lincolnshire Blue Light Campus – bringing together fire and rescue services, police force and ambulance service under one roof – and Birchin Way Custody Suite in Grimsby.
