Simon Reeve, a Reporter for BBC Two, recently visited a Civil Nuclear Constabulary site in Cumbria, experiencing one of their high-pressure training scenarios first-hand.

For this elite facility, DSSR carried out full M&E duties and provided a BREEAM sustainability assessment. DSSR also provided a Thermal Comfort Assessment using specialist IES modelling software, producing an energy and sustainability statement to complement the planning submission for the facility.

The Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) is a special police force responsible for providing law enforcement and security at any relevant nuclear site. Their core role is to provide armed policing and security for civil nuclear establishments and materials throughout the United Kingdom and to maintain a state of readiness against any possible attack on a licensed nuclear site.

The Cumbria training facility enables the CNC to provide vital, specialist training to ensure operatives are appropriately prepared to perform their challenging role.

The facility meets the stringent regulatory standards set by the College of Policing and the UK Government.
