Market Drayton Police Station
The location of the Market Drayton Police Station was key to West Mercia’s community policing strategy of remaining within the town center.
The design of the new station makes careful use of the site orientation to maximise passive solar design and also to respond respectfully to the surrounding residential properties.
Achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating, the building employs the principle of high thermal mass, coupled with low U-values and increased insulation thicknesses. Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal arrays are used to generate energy on site. Daylight tubes provide natural light into the building’s Section 30 compliant detainee’s suite, minimising energy use in the less used areas of the building.
Project: New Police Station. BREEAM Excellent.
