Scottish Crime Campus shell completed
May 3 2012
This takes the form of a four block structure arranged around a central atrium with a connecting bridge element designed to reflect the connecting strands of DNA.
This reflects the forensic work undertaken by The Serious Organised Crime Agency, The Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, The Crown Office Procurator Fiscal’s Services and The Scottish Police Services Authority Forensic Services who will occupy the facility.
To accommodate these agencies a range of flexible office space, forensic science laboratories and additional support facilities will be provided.
Externally the campus is clad in pre-cast concrete panels and glass curtain walling with an air cushioned ETFE polymer roof.
Michael Graham, executive chairman at GRAHAM Construction, said: “The Scottish Crime Campus is of national significance and the core and shell is the pivotal element of the entire project.
“The campus has been designed in such a way that it will promote a more collaborative approach among law enforcement agencies, as well as offer a thematic representation of the increasing role of science in tackling crime."
The Campus, designed by BMJ and gm+ad architects, is expected to be fully operational in autumn 2013.
