Blackrock Police Training Centre opens

Blackrock Police Training Centre will be officially opened by Home Secretary Theresa May today. We were appointed to design a new training centre for Avon and Somerset Police in Bristol which was completed at the end of the summer. The building contains highly specialist spaces, such as two fire ranges and tactical training facilities, plus offices and classrooms.

Designing a 5,800m2 police training facility that blends seamlessly into the base of a wonderful disused quarry was a unique challenge that required an unusual approach – perceiving the building as an integrated part of the landscape. Our solution presents the building as emerging from the rugged landscape.
