Bellerive Police Station
Client: Department of Police & Emergency Management — Tasmania Police
This major redevelopment required the design of the building to complement modern policing practices and accommodation standards. It included greater floor space and redesign, improved public interface, disability access, a safe and secure custody suite and charging area, ecologically sustainable design initiatives and an upgrading of building services with flexibility for future requirements. The redundant cell block was demolished and replaced with a functional two-storey extension to house offices and conference, seminar and training rooms. The interior design used contemporary materials and colours with quality finishes throughout and the facade of the existing building incorporates a new public canopy awning.
