Furnitubes external seating is arresting sight at new police centre

Functional and attractive external seating from Furnitubes International has been chosen for the front of a new Police Investigation Centre in Northamptonshire, built to high design and environmental standards.

Mesa concrete blocks

The new building was needed because facilities at Corby and Kettering Police Stations were outdated and cells no longer met Home Office standards or Safer Detention guidelines. The new centre on the outskirts of Kettering not only provides a 20-cell custody suite in the north of Northamptonshire, but a full range of facilities for investigators and partner agencies.

Zenith seats

With safety and security a primary concern, the building has been constructed to Home Office standards while still being aesthetically pleasing in keeping with nearby buildings and landscaping.

The new development required various external seating at the front entrance to accommodate staff and visitors. Furnitubes’ Mesa concrete blocks were ideal - whilst providing seating provision, the heavy duty blocks also act as a security barrier to the main entrance. Eight Zenith seats were supplied in a satin polish finish with WPC slats, as well as the addition of Contor Wall-Top seating platforms to the walls that surround the building.
