The Projects

WGA has worked on several Police Station developments and upgrades including facilities for the Criminal Investigation Branch, Crime Scene Investigation, Forensic Services and Criminal Justice Service. The various complexes include holding cells, padded cells, enclosed exercise yards, armouries, special vehicle storage, training, administration and support areas. Our projects include: 

  • Roxby Police Station
  • Netley Police Station
  • Golden Grove Police Station
  • Henley Beach Police Station
  • Christies Beach Police Station
  • Altona Police Station
  • Ngukurr Police Complex
  • Nightcliff Police Station
  • Kwinana and Belmont Police Station Alterations

Technical Solutions

All facilities include high attention to detail for security and earthquake and are IL4 in a structural sense. While not fully post-disaster facilities, the structural design & detailing reaches an IL4 categorisation.

Client Focus

All these facilities include subtle detailing for several Police specific issues. Security, robustness, and convenience are key design requirements. 

  • Initiatives such as protecting reception from drive-by shootings
  • Detailing of reception to allow for staff to retreat to a safe area
  • Oversized carparks to allow officers to fully open the doors of patrol cars which is a common problem for staff wearing equipment belts
  • Oversized doors and corridors for equipment belt clearances
  • Low-maintenance external finishes detailing
  • Secure compounds and good visibility entering and exiting compounds
