Nolan Associates have been chosen to provide civil and structural engineering consultancy services by local contracting company McPhillips, for the redevelopment of Telford Central Fire Station on Stafford Park.
McPhillips said “We are proud that Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service has selected them to deliver the major refurbishment of the facility.”
Built in the 1970s the station is the main response location for the Telford community and the £10m new-look development will provide facilities for operational and management training alongside multi-agency emergency command capabilities for area incidents.
Chief Fire Officer Rod Hammerton said: “This is an investment into the county for the next 30 years and will be a community facility built to the highest environmental standards – a flagship construction for green technology.
“The Brigade and McPhillips are also working together to identify ways to use the investment programme to provide job and training opportunities, and other community benefits.”
Shropshire and Wrekin Fire Authority Chairman, Councillor Eric Carter, said: “We’re delighted to be working with local contractor McPhillips on this project.”
McPhillips’ Marketing Manager, Mark Kiddie, said: “As a Telford business we’re delighted to be working with a client that shares our vision for supporting the local economy and as our base is less than five miles from the station, locally employed people will be working on the delivery of the project.”
