London Road Fire Station, Nottingham

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service requires a new Central Fire Station due to impending re-development of its existing site. The chosen site is located on London Road, a major arterial route into Nottingham. The location is strategically important to the fire service because it can provide a good response time to an emergency in the City Centre as well as support to the wider fire response network.

The site is in the Southside regeneration Zone, an area 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.
