The project to demolish and build a new Newark Fire Station was undertaken in two phases. Phase One completed in April and saw the Fire Brigade move to their new facilities. Phase Two, which included the new training tower, RTC compound, new sliding gate, additional parking and fuel tank etc, was completed mid-July 2018. The £2.4m project was completed on time and a representative from Nottingham Fire and Rescue Service said;

“As well as housing our two fires engines, which are crewed by both whole-time and retained staff, the new station will also house our technical rescue unit and is a clear sign of the Service’s commitment to keeping Newark and the surrounding areas as safe as possible.

Gavin Parker, Senior Contracts Manager on the 650m2 project commented;

“The construction works required continuous coordination, planning and liaison with all subcontractors and most importantly, the fire brigade. This ensured the building works progressed on time, whilst ensuring the existing ‘Live’ fire station remained operational at all times. We all worked well together on what has been a successful project.”
