Cundall provided CDM coordination for this major station refurbishment, which is one step towards improving firefighting services. The new building has been designed to house a range of ancillary facilities which also include plans to develop a community garden.
This new station project included the demolition of the existing fire station at Durham Street, Headland and the creation of a new retained status fire station.
Landscaping to the site was upgraded to allow for the community garden. The appliance circulation was also revised to improve the efficiency of the site.
The project was located in a built-up area, and was constructed with modern energy efficient robust materials. Cundall, acting as the project CDM Coordinator, was heavily involved in the interface between client, contractor, designers and the public.
As a separate function outside of the CDM Regulations 2007, Cundall conducted health, safety and environmental reporting to the client on the contractors activities.
