Llandudno, Police Station


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.

I am pleased to have been given the opportunity to comment on the contribution made by Lawray Architects to the recently completed Combined Services Centre in Llandrindod Wells. As lead consultants on a project with three separate stakeholders, their role was always going to be challenging. I was however, very impressed by the professional manner in which they succeeded not only in delivering a quality final product, but also in balancing with skill and patience the competing demands of their three ‘clients ’throughout both the planning and construction phases of the project. From a Dyfed Powys Police perspective, we were very satisfied with the design solutions offered and the ensuing facilities have received complimentary comments from the occupants
