Fire station built by J Tomlinson gains more accolades
September 8, 2017
J Tomlinson is once again celebrating the news that the Nottingham fire station the company completed last year has been recognised in a major awards ceremony.
The London Road Fire Station was named as a finalist at the East Midlands Property Dinner Awards in two categories – Sustainable Development of the Year (sponsored by Harworth) and Construction Project of the Year (sponsored by Invest in Nottingham).
Previously the fire station won two awards at the East Midlands RICS Awards 2017 in the infrastructure and the regeneration categories, and now goes to the national finals in November.
It was also shortlisted as a finalist in the Project of the Year category of the 2017 East Midlands Celebrating Construction Awards, and last October triumphed as the winner in the regeneration category of the East Midlands fbe Awards.
J Tomlinson managing director (construction), Martin Gallagher, said: “We were extremely proud to have been appointed to build such an important new building for Nottingham, and are delighted that it has been recognised as award-winning on a number of occasions.
“The London Road Fire Station is one of many projects that J Tomlinson has undertaken for the emergency services, working with fire, ambulance and police, and it is always a great endorsement when schemes are presented with awards.”
The London Road Fire Station has created a new, purpose-built facility for the fire service and Nottingham City Council’s Emergency Planning Team. Completed in August 2016, it complements the city’s south side regeneration plans, helps to regenerate the London Road gateway into the city, and has made excellent use of a previously run-down site in a high-profile location.
Other members of the development team included CPMG Architects and project manager, CPMG’s client, Turner & Townsend.
