Camels Head Fire Station
Camels Head Fire Station will undergo a refurbishment and redesign to become a more modern, practical space. Our Estates department is leading a team of consultants in this work.
This work forms part of our estate improvement programme ensuring our firefighters and local communities remain safe and fully supported.
The refurbishment will:
- improve thermal efficiency
- safeguard the structural frame against environmental deterioration
- address historic issues of moisture and dampness.
The redesign of the internal accommodation will prevent any cross-contamination between operational and administrative areas, improving the operational movement throughout the building.
Diversity, inclusion, and sustainability are key considerations for this project. These include the creation of self-contained restrooms and gender-neutral welfare facilities. An emphasis will be placed on low-carbon technologies and a large proportion of the building's energy usage will be generated by renewable sources.
Throughout the work, all of the wholetime crews will remain on-site and be fully operational.
At set times crews will move to different parts of the building, creating vacant areas that can be refurbished.
