Police Scotland’s Aberdeen custody centre takes shape
August 5 2013
Situated at Kitty Brewster the custody centre will host 60 cells in addition to a virtual court, identity parade suite and accommodation for a local community policing team.
Designed by Ryder through hub North Scotland the scheme is situated 2km north of Aberdeen city centre on a former Scottish Water depot.
Taking advantage of a natural change in levels the scheme is split across two floors with secure areas situated in the basement and office facilities above; with each element having its own separate entrance.
Clad in pre-cast concrete panels and curtain wall glazing the pavilion style structure will face its own entrance plaza and sits beneath a sedum roof.
The custody centre is due for completion in early 2014.
