Context

A new £48 million Operational Command Centre for Merseyside Police is being protected by Secured by Design fencing from CLD Fencing Systems on the Estuary Business Park in Speke.

The new centre will play host to more than 1,200 officers and support staff including Merseyside Police’s MSOC (Matrix and Serious and Organised Crime).

Construction started in March 2016, with construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall being appointed as principle contractors for the project after it was procured through the North West Construction Hub framework.

The three-storey building takes prime position on the 11.4-acre site that also plays host to a separate, single-storey building which will provide administrative and support services; as well as further smaller buildings including dog kennels, a fuel station and a gate house. The site has been designed to provide car parking and land for dog exercise and training.

When looking at how the site would be protected, CLD Fencing Systems worked direct with Merseyside Police to design a system from its Secured by Design range of fencing and gate solutions that would be able to offer a guaranteed delay against attack, whilst still maintaining an aesthetically pleasing demarcation option.

The system of choice was over 6040lnm of Ultimate Extra SR1™, which is unique to CLD Fencing Systems, and holds LPS1175 SR1 as well as being accredited to Secured by Design. The high-security system offers a reduced mesh aperture of 165 x 25mm with 6mm wires. Another key security feature of the system is the removal of any external fixings on the attack face due to the SafeTFix Hidden Fixing system that is featured on all Ultimate Extra SR1™ systems.

The fencing system was installed in March 2017 by Nationwide Fencing Services Ltd to provide a secure demarcation for the site whilst construction work was carried out. Each panel was fitted with branded Morgan Sindall advertising to create a clean and clear construction site.

Outcome

Almost a year later, the centre was received by Merseyside’s Police Commissioner, Jane Kennedy, and Chief Constable Andy Cooke, who attended a special ceremony at which the centre was handed over to them.

Jane said: “What a transformation! Less than two years ago, this was a muddy field. Now, we have been able to officially take delivery of the building so that officers and staff who make up the Matric units can now start to move into this purpose-built centre.“

She continued: “These teams lead the fight against the criminal gangs which bring the most fear to our communities and it is only right that they have the equipment and facilities they need to carry out the work as effectively as possible.”

The final site features the latest in security, safety and design and forms an integral part of the Commissioner’s 10-year strategy to transform and modernise Merseyside Police’s station and facilities.
