The Northern Accommodation Building was developed to replace the outdated police stations in Kettering and Corby. It provides modern, fit-for-purpose custody facilities and office accommodation to better support operational policing in the north of the county.
The site consists of a 20-cell custody suite and three-story office building that can accommodate more than 300 officers and staff. It houses both Northamptonshire Police and the county’s Fire and Rescue Service.
Partnering with Northamptonshire Police to help secure its new headquarters in Kettering, Marshalls used products from its Landscape Protection portfolio to create a secure and attractive landscaped space.
Products used on the scheme included bespoke concrete planters, Geo bollards, Geo seating and a Pluto cycle shelter.
Jaz Vilkhu, Managing Director of Marshalls Landscape Protection, said: “The specification required to protect facilities such as the Northern Accommodation Building means only the most secure products will do. However, it is also vital they fit into and complement the surrounding landscape.
“Our Landscape Protection products achieve the desired aesthetic aim while also protecting against any potential accidental or criminal damage, ensuring the new building is fit for the future.”
Kate Perriss, Estates Manager at Northamptonshire Police, said: “While our new base is state-of-the-art on the inside, we also recognised the importance of securing the building’s exterior too.
“The products provided by Marshalls’ Landscape Protection help us do this effectively and subtly, without making the building imposing and enabling us to provide a modern office and workplace to support policing in the north of the county.”
Marshalls works with the public sector and businesses to manufacture and recommend Landscape Protection products with the appropriate safety ratings.
The Landscape Protection product line consists of specially designed street furniture, which includes benches, planters, litter bins, cycle stands and bollards, manufactured to PAS 68/69, PAS 170 and IWA 14.1/14.2 standards. These are used to create safe, attractive spaces that protect the public, while integrating seamlessly into the surrounding environment.
