Western Fire Station

Client: Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service

Sector: Blue Light Emergency

Project Brief: Full refurbishment and internal reconfiguration

Services: Project Management, Principal Designer, Contract Administration

We were appointed by Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service (LFRS) to carry out a full refurbishment and internal reconfiguration at their Western Station in order to address equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) issues, improve segregation between clean and dirty areas, and improve the internal environment.

Initially, YMD Boon undertook a feasibility review to understand the scope of works required to deliver the client requirements and associated costs. Once confirmed, YMD Boon acted as Project Manager during the project construction phase and appointed a multi-disciplinary team to deliver the project.

Revitalising the station’s internal structure, the works comprised of new wet rooms and accessible WC’s, a kitchen refurbishment, internal M&E alterations, and redecoration throughout. External works were also carried out, including roof replacements, redecoration to the access gates, the erection of a new canopy and the installation of external doors and windows to the new community room.

The site remained open and fully operational throughout the construction period. The works were carried out with minimal disruption.

YMD Boon have been appointed by Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service to provide lead consultancy and multi-disciplinary services at their Eastern Station and Southern Station. 

Currently, YMD Boon have carried out RIBA Stage 2 feasibility reports for both stations, and are now progressing with the Eastern Station refurbishment works which is due to start on site in the Spring 2024.
