ABOUT THE BUILDING
In 2010, London Fire & Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) opened its first new fire station in over two decades at Harold Hill, East London. This very challenging project involved the conversion of three existing interconnecting industrial units to form a fully operational two-bay fire station.
Harold Hill underwent a BREEAM assessment in line with the LFEPA requirement to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ for all new build projects and a minimum of ‘Very Good’ for refurbishment projects.
The station, which was officially opened in February 2010 by London Mayor Boris Johnson, provides the LFEPA with improved operational response in the Harold Hill area, and gives firefighters modern working conditions.
