Dafen Custody Suites, Llanelli

Main Contractor: Willmott Dixon

Contract Value: £2.4 million

Client: Dyfed Powys Police

F P Hurley delivered the mechanical services for Dyfed Powys Police’s brand new police station with an 18-cell custody suite unit. The modern and sustainable building provides excellent facilities to meet the needs of modern law enforcement and detainee wellbeing. The 2 storey facility will provide 18 custody suites, office space, interview rooms and virtual courts and will house around 180 staff. The site is close to the the Wales Air Ambulance base, and close communication and full coordination was needed with them to ensure that any craneage on site didn’t impact on their service provision. The new custody suites will replace older facilities in Llanelli and Ammanford.

  • Air source heat pumps
  • Air conditioning
  • Mechanical ventilation
  • Domestic hot and cold water services
