Our Services: Quantity Surveyor, Project Manager
Client: Essex County Fire and Rescue Service
Contract Value: £1.3m
Contract Period: 1 year
Contract Type: JCT Intermediate Building Contract with contractor’s design 2016

The site consisted of a mixture of single storey outbuildings/extensions and a two-storey main building, which also housed the former police station.

The appliance bay was located in this main building and was inadequate as it could not accommodate the client’s largest fire engine. The appliance bay was therefore converted and the rest of the building was remodelled and refurbished.

The single-storey extensions and outbuildings were demolished to make way for a new, purpose-built appliance bay and a new single storey linking structure was constructed to join the appliance bay to the existing building.

As part of the works, solar panels were installed to reduce dependence on traditional energy sources.
