As part of Frank Shaw Associates work on our framework agreement with Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, we carried out feasibility and outline design stage studies for three new fire stations. Along with a number of site development plans and various minor improvements across the estate. One of the new stations is the Nottingham Road Fire Station
Nottingham Road Fire Station which is located in Derby, is a two appliance fire station with all the supporting technical, admin and social spaces with the addition of community facilities.
As the location of the existing station was ideal for a “Community Station” the existing buildings were demolished to make way for the new high profile station with enlarged community facilities integrated into the design. The community/lecture room, with its own separate entrance, occupies a prominent location at the corner of the building. Multiple use facilities are incorporated at the interface of the fire service and community accommodation.
