Construction & Build

Willmott Dixon has expanded its portfolio of blue light projects with an £18m deal to deliver Pendle Police Station for Lancashire Constabulary. The new station will be operational by Autumn 2025

The facility to be located at Carr Road in Nelson will replace older stations in Colne and Nelson.

Construction work on the three-storey police station and associated multi-storey car park, was procured through Procure Partnerships. 

This contract follows the announcement last month that Willmott Dixon had been appointed for the £55m project to redevelop the existing headquarters building of Hertfordshire Constabulary in Welwyn Garden City.

Other recent projects for the emergency services include a forensics centre for Thames Valley Police, a fire station and training centre for West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service, as well as new headquarter buildings for Dorset, Humberside and Merseyside Police Forces.

Michael Poole-Sutherland, director for Willmott Dixon in the North, said: “We are proud to play our part in ensuring Lancashire officers have the modern facilities and the very best support to keep the people of Pendle safe.

“We also want to leave a legacy beyond bricks and mortar and will be supporting the Lancashire economy by using local businesses and creating local employment opportunities whenever possible during construction.”
