London Road Fire Station, Nottingham

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service required a new Central Fire Station building, due to impending redevelopment of its existing site. The new station’s location on London Road sits on a major arterial route into Nottingham. This is strategically important to the fire service as it can provide a good response time to an emergency in the city centre, as well as support the wider fire response network.

The site is in Nottingham City Council’s ‘Southside Regeneration Zone’ an area currently undergoing significant change. In response to this, the proposed form and building fabric represents an attractive modern addition to the southside area, whilst maintaining use of the historical materials that prevail in the local context.
