Northumbria Police Headquarters – Wallsend

Wallsend, North Tyneside
Project value £27.0m
Custodial sector

New Northumbria Police are command headquarters in North Tyneside.  The building located on Middle Engine Lane, Wallsend is a state-of-the-art facility that is the base for up to 300 North Tyneside police officers and staff and also has a custody suite with 40 cells.  

Stretching over three floors, the modern design is dominated by a glazed concourse that allows natural light in to the heart of the building, making it a welcoming space for the public and officers and staff based there.  The largely open-plan office accommodation had been designed to meet the needs of a modern police force but is flexible and can be adapted and changed to meet any future requirements.  The custody suite of 40 cells is one of the most innovative in the country.  From the operational hub, sight lines are maximised to ensure custody safety and security in all areas.

Built to BREEAM excellence rating.
