An addition the building houses the Fire and Rescue Service cutting gear and operational hardware, a Vehicle & Equipment Workshop will be shared by both services. The aim of the joint building for the services to share facilities collaborate which in turn should lead to operational cost savings.

Project Challenges
The main challenges with this project were co-ordination with sub-contractors, because of the amount of specialist contractors. Due to the amount of information that was needed to complete the project, it was difficult to get discussions between the joint services. This meant most decisions where finalised later in the project.

The project completed on time with a very happy client. The project is expected to save joint running costs annually in the region of £100,000.
