Architect sought for Much Wenlock Fire Station revamp

  • Comment

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service is looking for an architect for a £300,000 overhaul of Much Wenlock Fire Station

The project will renovate and reconfigure the facility on Smithfield Road, which has been deemed no longer fit for purpose.

The winning team may also be commissioned to deliver a series of minor projects worth up to £1 million on various other sites owned by the service once the regeneration project is complete. According to the brief: ‘Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service has identified that Much Wenlock Fire Station has inadequate facilities for the current and future needs of the service.

‘The client’s objective is to improve the layout of the existing fire station, by refurbishment and extension to bring it up to current DDA standards and to reduce CO2 emissions. The refurbishment work is to include partial new heating and electrical rewiring, comfort cooling and the carrying out various thermal improvements.’

Much Wenlock is a small town of around 2,877 residents located between Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth in Shropshire. The fire station occupies a prominent site in the west of the settlement a short distance from Much Wenlock’s 16th-century guildhall and Anglo-Saxon church.

The renovation project will replace the fire station’s roof, windows, entrance and bay door while upgrading the appearance of its front elevation. Internally the building will be reconfigured to create a disabled toilet, shower room, storage area, watch room, lecture theatre, kitchen, offices and appliance bay. It is planned to complete in 2018. 

The deadline for applications is noon, 13 February.
