Commendation at the Design & Craftsmanship Awards
Chaplin Farrant were very pleased to receive a Commendation for the new Broadland Police Station, Postwick, Norwich at the Norwich and Norfolk Design and Craftsmanship Awards on 16th November 2023.
The project combines the police services into a single space to create an efficient operational base. The health and wellbeing of staff in the building were at the heart of design decisions. The design is sympathetic and embedded in its landscape, raising the bar for developments of this kind. Careful choice of materials and scale to contribute to the surroundings. It achieved 102.6 tonne reduction of CO2 through the use of low carbon concrete compared to standard concrete. 120 tonnes of recycled hardcore was reused. 86% of suppliers were local SME’s with £6.5m spent locally.
A very enjoyable evening and a great showcase of architectural designs and craftsmanship across Norfolk.
