Bond Brick completes Southampton Operational Command Unit

Bond Brick Ltd completed its biggest ever project. The contract, awarded by Kier Group, was  to undertake the building of the new £38million  headquarters for the Hampshire Police Authority in Southampton.


The Southampton Operational Command Unit includes a 42 cell custody suite and provides a state of the art building for operations and administrative functions. The new 7,150sq m building consolidates previously split-site locations creating one new central police facility.

Located close to Southampton city centre on an existing brown-field site (the former Norman Offer Transport site), the new Southampton Operations Command Unit (SOCU) was procured using the SECE (now IESE) Major Framework.

The landmark building  provides a modern police facility for generations to come. Bond Brick provided a permanent onsite project management team to ensure the smooth running of the build.

Richard Bond, Managing Director of  Bond Brick Ltd explains “This successful completion of this project resulted from the hard work of the whole Bond Brick team involving all departments within the firm including surveying, tendering, planning and operations. Our experience of major builds and competitive pricing,  combined with our excellent reputation and previous work with Kier Group enabled us to successfully deliver our works on his landmark contract within budget and on time.”
