To support Northamptonshire Police’s move towards a leaner service and a more efficient, centralised estate, we developed a clear strategy for achieving this within a short timeframe.
Facing the problem of an ageing estate that is geographically dispersed and no longer supports 21st century policing, we were appointed to undertake a full review of current and future potential occupation needs.
The exercise incorporated estate mapping, initial design proposals with costings, and an innovative workplace strategy.
By mapping both the estate and the workforce, we were able to identify better ways of working to protect frontline services and ensure resources will be invested in a prioritised and targeted way.
Our 5-10 year estate masterplan, incorporating maintenance and capital improvements, will maximise best value for the client from future capital investment.
Stuart Bonner, Head of Estates and Facilities, Northamptonshire Police, said: “Being a long-term strategic partner to the force, Pick Everard feels like a member of the team. This approach ensures a smooth information exchange leading to the best possible output. The technical support offered is always of a high quality and trusted by both the estates and facilities team, and senior officers alike.”
