Complete with en-suite rooms, it has been kitted out with the latest state-of-the-art equipment, to ensure a safer environment for staff and detainees.
The new generation of custody suites set high standards for its washrooms and sanitaryware; the goal was to showcase a new approach to policing, not just a new building. Industry leading engineering provider, Lorne Stewart were involved in the technical submissions and procurement stages as the M&E contractor.
Having worked with Wallgate previously, confidence in their product reliability and service support was a given.
Each building contains 60 holding cells; the Oldbury site houses smaller offices and Perry Barr central custody suite has dedicated facilities for partners working in mental health, substance misuse and immigration. Wallgate products were predominantly installed in the cell blocks.
Stewart Parsons, mechanical project engineer commented: “Wallgate’s products are undoubtedly the best on the market. Their products are robust, easy to clean and extremely long lasting. If you want an intelligent, smart, washroom solution then use Wallgate.”
