McBains Cooper signs contract with Cambridgeshire Police for new ‘green’ police station
Leading inter-disciplinary property and construction consultancy McBains Cooper together with EC Harris has signed a contract with Cambridgeshire Constabulary for a police station in the new town of Cambourne and a planning application has just been submitted for the scheme.
The £1.3m development will feature a variety of renewable energy sources including solar panels, ground source heating, grey water recycling, partially a green roof and a 17.5m tall windturbine, providing up to 20% of the Station's electricity.
The two-storey, 500 sqm building displays a contemporary design which currently specifies the use of slate, patinated copper and the construction of a glazed ‘link’, similar to an atrium.
McBains Cooper is providing architecture to the scheme.
