Bringing an updated look for Beaumont Leys police station
Careful planning was key in the work we carried out at Beaumont Leys Police Station in Leicester. We were tasked with updating the station’s current layout, look, and facilities, all while working around the everyday life at a live police facility.
We also needed to carry out some demolition work, which meant employing specific equipment and using it safely.
Updating Beaumont Leys Police Station saw us both designing and installing new areas of the building. The station had some brand new offices installed, with existing areas such as the cells, custody suite and locker room receiving a new look.
Because the work was required at a live police station, which needed to remain operational, our work needed to be carefully planned around the station’s routines and deadlines. Our fully-vetted staff made sure that any disruption, especially with refurbishing the custody suite, was completed on time and any deliveries needed were planned around the station’s operations.
This area of the refurbishment was especially important to complete quickly but still keeping a high level of quality, as the cells could only be out of action for a short amount of time. We ensured that we kept this period as short as possible so the officers could still carry out their duties.
Working in a live police station also meant that we had to react swiftly to an increase in activity, such as people being brought into the custody suite, and we also put in place a ‘call-off’ order for deliveries so as to not cause the station any unnecessary disruption or place anyone at risk.
Through installing a suspended ceiling, new showers and toilets, and redecorating the facility, Beaumont Leys’ Police Station now has a modern look which will last for years. Our team also installed internal walls, keeping the station’s staff updated with any issues and addressing them as quickly as possible.
As a result of our careful planning and communication, Beaumont Leys Police Station was able to remain operational, keeping the residents of the area safe while presenting a professional impression.
