The new fire station in Staffordshire, officially opened by HRH Prince Edward, is a state-of-the-art facility that is crewed 24/7 by 28 fire-fighters.
The 2,100m² two storey building is comprised of facilities for use by operational staff including four appliance bays, a community room and a fitness suite.
Anderson Green was responsible for the Mechanical and Electrical Detailed Costs, Full Design and producing a thermal model to accurately assess the building loads.
On competition of the Mechanical & Electrical Design, Anderson Green undertook the spatial co-ordination to ensure all disciplines including the specialised vehicle exhaust extract and sprinkler systems were installed with the minimum of problems.

Chief Fire Officer/Chief Executive, Peter Dartford comments
“This is the first newly built fire station in North Staffordshire since Ipstones was built back in 1996. The station will really set the standard for the future of fire stations both in Staffordshire and across the UK.”
Chairman of the Integrated Asset Programme Board of the Fire and Rescue Authority, Cllr Rex Robert OBE said:
“It’s taken years of hard work to get to this stage, so to now see actual construction work in progress it’s very rewarding. It’s a very exciting time for both the Service and the communities who will benefit from these new facilities.”
