Willmott Dixon lands £55m Hertfordshire police HQ rebuild

Willmott Dixon has secured a £55m contract to build a new headquarters for Hertfordshire Police force in Welwyn Garden City.

The project first involves demolishing 11 buildings from the 1960s to make way for a 5-storey complex to house over 600 operational staff.

Procured via the SCAPE Construction framework, the 9,000 sq m headquarters will reduce the current Stanborough estate’s long-term running costs.

It will also provide a new home for services and departments based at the site including the Major Crime Unit, victim services and the dog unit, along with the senior leadership team and operational support staff.

Designed by Vincent & Gorbing Associates, work will complete in summer 2026 wit the building aiming for a BREEAM Excellent rating.

The new two wings will be connected by a central full-height glazed atrium

Stewart Brundell, managing director at Willmott Dixon in North London and Northern Homes Counties said: “This project follows on from our successful delivery of the Bedfordshire Police’s new custody suite.

“The new HQ will provide Hertfordshire Constabulary’s people with a sustainable, flexible working environment which can be utilised for police and community groups as well.”
