Our Solution

The control centre needed to provide a functional, aesthetic and state of the art control room providing command and control of emergency services across the country. We worked closely with police stakeholders to prepare the operational requirements, and used prototyping techniques to ensure the design met the needs of the operators. Innovative natural daylight devices will capture and transmit sunlight into underground areas to create ‘underground gardens’ and a real-time sense of the time of day and external conditions. By collaborating and co-creating with end users through the use of prototyping, models and mock-ups, our design provided a high performing working environment in a high security facility.
