Sherwood Lodge Headquarters

Client: Gleeds Global on behalf of Nottinghamshire Police and Fire and Rescue Services

Project Brief: Joint HQ for the Police and Fire Rescue Services in Nottinghamshire

Services: Architecture, Principal Designer

We were appointed by Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue to design and deliver a new Joint HQ and remodel and upgrade their existing accommodation at their headquarter site in Sherwood.

The three-storey, steel frame building features a mixture of masonry and cladding and contains open plan offices, a training centre, conference rooms, a new multi-agency strategic and tactical control room, a multi-purpose hall designed to Sport England standards, a gymnasium and canteen. Other key developments include the installation of an outdoor exercise trail for staff.

Additionally, we have refurbished the existing accommodation to include new interview rooms, an open plan office, IT space, classrooms, server rooms and ICT rooms.

We also redeveloped the site to include parking capacity for 940 spaces, re-configured the road network to improve vehicle movement and security on site and removed trees and buildings where no longer required to improve the landscape.

The new HQ was a vital next step in the collaboration between Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue and Nottinghamshire Police to provide a more efficient modern working environment, with cutting edge facilities and technologies that will support the services, enabling them to better serve the public and save money.

The Joint HQ project has been awarded:

- RoSPA Gold Award in 2022

- Shortlisted for Commercial Development of the Year at East Midlands Bricks Awards 2022

- Shortlisted for Construction Project of the Year at EMPD Awards 2022
