Clydesmill Community Fire Station is a 18,740ft² state-of-the-art new facility located on the south bank of the River Clyde which has resulted from the merger of two existing stations at Parkhead and Cambuslang.
The design was developed in conjunction with Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and comprises two primary components. The first includes accommodation for the 60 firefighters who will be serving in the area, whilst the second element is formed from community education facilities utilised by the fire services to promote fire safety within all sectors of the local community.
The Station boasts a raft of green technology including a combined heat and power system which has helped the building achieve a B+ rating Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
Brian Sweeney, Chief Officer of Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, said: “This fire station is an impressive building but it’s also impressive in the sense of the extra services it will provide to its communities. When you take in the design and size of the fire station, the environmental aspects of the design and the range of facilities it provides, there is no doubt that Clydesmill community fire station is the most up-to-date in the whole of the United Kingdom.”
