Inside the deal: The local firm will construct the new facility in Redditch for West Mercia Police and Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS), via the Pagabo Medium Works framework.  

Current facilities are ‘outdated and unfit’, said the firm. 

  • New accommodation unit 
  • Drill tower 
  • Bays for three vehicles 
  • Kitchen 
  • Gym 
  • Conference room 

A large car park will also be built.  

Funding is split between HWFRS and the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC). 

The build on Middle House Lane will have a BREEAM rating of ‘Good’.  

The scheme is due to complete in 2024.
