SFR Training Centre Officially Opens
Strathclyde Fire & Rescue’s new £35m Training Centre at Clydesmill Industrial Estate in Cambuslang has been officially opened by Councillor Joseph Lowe, Convener of the Board of Strathclyde Fire & Rescue.
Hulley and Kirkwood are delighted to have been associated with this unusual and challenging project in their capacity of Consulting Mechanical and Electrical Services Engineers, having worked collaboratively on the project since design inception in March 2009 (some 3 years pre-PC). We are proud of our contribution to some of the defining aspects of the project:
Academic building with a B+ EPC
Academic building an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM (award pending post-construction review)
Renewable energy strategy including biomass and wind sources
M&E services support to the Fire Training Specialist
Exemplar of a ‘New’ Generation of fire training facilities
Cohesive, simple and structured approach to M&E Services design
We continue to support the Main Contractor (Lend Lease) and SFR in the inevitable ‘bedding-in’ and familiarisation process for the new buildings and utilities.
The project has already attracted global interest, with several visiting parties related with the similar, new FOLD facilities project to be built for the Metropolitan Fire Brigade in Melbourne, Australia.
The expansive site retains future spatial provision for technical rescue, water rescue and occupational health and fitness facilities.
