South Yorkshire Police

New Training Centre – Robert Dyson House Dearne Valley

SDA were appointed by South Yorkshire Police to undertake the specification of mechanical and electrical services and administration of works on site for their new training centre, in the Dearne Valley.

This project involved the redevelopment of an 8 year old building designed and constructed as a call centre to provide a new training centre together with office accommodation for South Yorkshire Police. The building was modified to create a variety of spaces including multiple classrooms, open plan office accommodation, gym and fitness spaces, changing facilities, meeting briefing and conferencing facilities, an immersive training suite together with office accommodation for investigation teams. SDA prepared a performance specification at very short notice to allow the procurement of the project on a design and build basis.

A key objective of the Client was to create a state of the art training facility to replace existing unsuitable accommodation for use by their own staff and by outside organisations.
