Willmott Dixon have delivered a building to be proud of – a well-designed and well-constructed police base that effectively combines imaginative concept with careful attention to detail.

The building represents a step-change in police accommodation, and will surely help strengthen staff well-being, service delivery, and the image of the Lancashire Constabulary in the community.”
