Event has been appointed to design a 16m visitor centre for the British police.
The consultancy, which won the job after a credentials and proposals pitch, is working with Jon Hall of the Heritage Resource Centre on the project.
Event’s proposals for the visitor centre include creating a forum to celebrate the success and development of British policing and its role in British society.
“Educating the public, particularly young people, about policing, law, crime prevention, community safety, social history, forensic science and relevant technology is one of the main goals of the centre,” says Event director Cel Phelan.
The centre should also contribute to the Millennium celebrations, says Phelan, and the client – the Metropolitan, City of London and other UK police forces – will be applying to the Millennium Commission to possibly create the centre on the Millennium Festival site.
