Llandudno, Police Station

Synopsis

Lawray was appointed as Architect and Lead Consultant for the new Police Station in Llandudno just outside the town’s Conservation area. Replacing the existing Edwardian station which was no longer suitable for modern policing and in a poor state of repair the decision was taken to adopt a more contemporary design solution rather than ape the adjacent buildings.

The striking design introduces a crisp modern aesthetic reflecting the status of an important civic building in the town with material chosen, in close consultation with the local Planning Authority, to withstand the often harsh micro-climate and reduce the need for on-going maintenance.

Due to start on site in spring 2016 the competed facility will achieve BREEAM Excellent.


Lawray has been a partner of the Corporation of the Church House for over 20 years and in that time has been heavily involved in several large refurbishment projects. The team’s knowledge and skills have proved invaluable in the areas of design, planning and project administration. When redeveloping a listed property, Lawray have ensured that they treat the architecture with sympathy whilst producing space that is effective for modern day requirements. Lawray continues to work closely with our in-house team on forthcoming projects and we would have no hesitation in recommending their work to others.
