The Overview

Client: Balfour Beatty; Fire and Rescue (NW) Limited.
Location: Belle Vale, Burnley, Chorley & Fleetwood
Contract Responsibilities: Structural, First and Second Fix Joinery and Carpentry Works

The specification for the new fire stations, was drawn up to enhance operational efficiency and also to acknowledge the fire prevention role that is such a crucial part of today’s Fire and Rescue Service. The modern design and functionality of the fire stations had to incorporate a variety of facilities including welfare, meeting and lecture rooms, offices, communal areas and the new in-house smoke house for improved training.

The Challenge

Gallaway’s specific involvement in the construction of the projects was to carry out all works associated with the structural, first, second fix, joinery works inclusive of full fixtures, fittings, equipment and kitchens. Special consideration had to be given to the sites and their physical conditions, materials and types of equipment and the facilities needed. It was necessary for Gallaway to familiarise ourselves with any statutory or imposed restrictions that may have an effect on the execution or completion of the works.

The Solution

The Gallaway principle of constant communication with all teams onsite was fundamental to the success of this project.
Excellence in team selection, forward planning and a well executed site management programme all contributed to the successful delivery of this scheme.

Gallaway is pleased to announce all four schemes were handed over to the client to a high standard of quality, on time and on budget. All four stations are now operational and actively serving their communities.
