Dudley’s Aluminium has begun work on two headquarters buildings so the Welsh Police Force can continue bringing justice to the region.

South Wales Police is the largest police force in Wales, serving communities across the region between Swansea and Cardiff. The first of the two builds is situated in Bridgend. It is valued at £1.4 million. It includes a four-story police learning centre, a human resources building and a two-story gym. Once complete, the HQ will welcome an additional 650 people on site every day.

Dudley’s will be working with Willmott Dixon on the build which includes revolving doors as well as automatic swing and sliding doors. The aluminium fabricator will be installing a range of Kawneer products including capped curtain walling, windows and doors.


Blast resistant

Teaming up with BAM Construction, Dudley’s will also be using Kawneer products throughout its second build, the Gwent Police Headquarters in Cwmbran. In addition to windows and doors, the Welsh company will also be installing Kawneer’s Louvreshield external shading and providing extra security to the build with enhanced blast resistant capped curtain walling.


 “The facilities will help the forces in their professional development, continuing to serve and benefit communities in the South Wales and Gwent regions. We’ve worked with BAM Construction and Willmott Dixon before on a range of projects and it’s great to be working with them again.”
