Duo fire station success for Humberside Fire & Rescue Service

Contributing to the safety of people is something we take seriously and pride ourselves on, and when asked by our long-standing client Mace to work with them on two new fire stations’ Brough and Hull Central Fire Station, we felt both honoured and thrilled to undertake these projects.

The fire stations were constructed as part of the Humberside Fire & Rescue Service programme to modernise their facilities and operations. Our successful inspection programme allowed for both fire stations to be completed and handed over to the team to carry on providing their invaluable emergency service to the Humberside people.

Brough Fire Station which is based on the old BAE site enables 19 on-call firefighters and two fire engines to have a modern base to cover Brough and the surrounding areas effectively. The new Hull Central Fire Station replaces the existing building which was originally constructed in 1927, rebuilt after the Second World War and was the oldest fire station in Humberside. The new station will house a team of 24 full-time firefighters and one fire engine.

‘We utilised the skills of experienced Building Clerk of Works Steve Almond, and Mechanical and Electrical Clerk of Works John Metcalfe on these projects to inspect all construction work undertaken. They did a thorough job and ensured an effective handover within timescales and on budget’.
– Hickton Resource Manager Jonathan King
