RVW Consulting Limited are pleased to announce the successful completion of the Bridgend Custody Suite for the South Wales Police as part of a strategy to rationalise custody suite facilities in the region.
The new custody suite will replace the outdated cells in Bridgend Police Station and will be used for detainees from across Bridgend County and parts of Neath and Port Talbot. This new development will complement the custody suites in Cardiff Bay and Swansea and assist in improving the police service provided across the South Wales region. A fourth facility is being built in Merthyr to complete the new system.
South Wales Police say that the centralisation of key functions together with the installation of appropriate equipment is expected to speed up the criminal justice process, improve the service for victims and enabling the available officers to be back on the streets much more quickly. The scope of services provided by RVW Consulting Limited included design of the substructure and superstructure elements using BIM, and drainage, external works using 3D ground modelling and drainage software.
The project was successfully completed during early May 2014.
