North Shore Policing Centre
This facility is New Zealands largest purpose built policing
centre, comprising approximately 3,500 sq metres of operational
office space and 4000 sq metres of secure space, cell units, car
parking and associated facillities.trols to serve the site.
A new generation of design
concentrated on energy efficiency for all services and saw the
separation of "hard" and "soft" areas so victims and offenders do
not even come visually into contact with each other.
Allendale Electrical worked closely with the designers, builders
and the Police to ensure that the finished facility operated the
way the Police wanted.
One of the biggest challenges
Allendale faced was the design and installation of the Lightning
protection system. Considerable consideration had to be given to
the people housed in the cell blocks, the police antenna and
architectural resistrictions along the length of the 60m building
while still adhering to protection level PL1 from AS/NZS 1768.
