Custody Suite & Policing base, Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner

In May 2023, Heddlu Dyfed-Powys Police opened its new Carmarthenshire Custody Suite and Policing base in Dafen, Llanelli.

Planning permission was granted to the Dyfed-Powys Office of Police and Crime Commissioner by Carmarthenshire County Council back in April 2021 for the £18.6 million development, which Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn describes as a significant investment that has delivered a fit for purpose, modern facility for Dyfed-Powys Police.

As well as housing a new custody suite with 18 cells, some specialist departments and facilities will be based at the new policing hub as well as local response officers. The construction has been given a BREEAM excellence rating, for its sustainable credentials which include a photovoltaic solar power installation to minimise the carbon footprint of the building; a rainwater harvesting facility for toilets and non-potable water, and electric car charging facilities.

We were commissioned by Willmott Dixon to supply the fitted furniture for the new facility. We also provided BIM compliant space planning services, showroom visits, samples and loose furniture throughout the building.
