ISG has secured its latest framework project for Cleveland Fire Authority, commencing a circa £6 million training and administration centre in Hartlepool. As sole appointee to a four-year capital build framework with the Fire Authority, worth more than £22 million in total, ISG is also delivering a Technical Hub and Training facility and four local fire stations in Middlesbrough, Headland, Thornaby and Grangetown.
The circa 32,000 sq ft training and administration centre provides Cleveland Fire Authority with flexible accommodation across two floors – with majority open plan office areas, community facilities and training space. Designed to maximise the amount of daylight entering the building, the new centre features extensive curtain walling to its façade and an impressive full height atrium, with an outside terraced area at first floor level. Other facilities include a ground floor café, break out areas and a gymnasium, with highly-flexible training space featuring moveable partition wall structures to accommodate large or small groups.
