Description

Complete refurbishment of the ten storey Mount Road Police station – its first major facelift since being built some 25 – 30 years ago: the upgrade included replacing all steel window frames with aluminium frames. The internal refurbishment was done floor-by-floor to cause minimum disruption to the 200 people who work in the building. Refurbished areas included the tower building, office block, the community service centre, gymnasium and the holding cells. The radio server room was upgraded and a 9m high new radio mast installed on the top of the building to assist with radio communication and networking. Building works included construction of a witness identification room and a glass wall to replace the brick wall at the entrance to the station. The contract included fast track construction of the joint operations centre over only eight weeks, in time for the 2010 World Cup.
