Contractor named on £18.5m emergency services HQ

How the new building will look

The contractor which will build the new £18.5m joint headquarters for Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service has been named.

Henry Brothers Midlands will construct the three-storey building on land behind the existing Nottinghamshire Police headquarters at Sherwood Lodge.

It is scheduled to open by the end of 2021.

Work on the new building, which will include a control room, training centre, changing rooms, gym, canteen and shared offices, is expected to begin next month.

Once complete it will form part of a wider joint campus that will also include all of the existing police headquarters.

Ian Taylor, managing director of Henry Brothers Midlands, said: “As a local company, we are delighted to have been appointed to build this new joint headquarters building for Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service.

“Henry Brothers has a wealth of experience when it comes to public sector buildings and we are proud to have been selected to work on such a high profile and important project for our local emergency services.”

Other members of the construction team on the joint headquarters project for the emergency services include Gleeds for project management, cost consultancy and M&E services, YMD Boon as architect, and civil and structural engineering firm HWA.
