Additional hot rig training rigs (one carbonaceous unit and one Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) rig) were needed to support the training of firefighters in realistic and controlled environments. These rigs were of similar construction and used the same materials as the existing carbonaceous rig previously installed by our team in 2010.
A modular building was delivered for the welfare, office space and classroom facilities, with the ability to be relocated if necessary in the future. Our Project Manager supported the two-stage procurement of the modular unit via the Suffolk County Council Construction Framework. Concertus are committed to supporting local businesses including contractors and suppliers, which also helps with our commitment to Net Zero.
This bespoke building incorporated a range of sustainable features including an air source heat pump, well-insulated building fabric, and hi-spec LED lighting. Replacing the poor facilities on site with an energy-efficient building has resulted in an EPC B rating, as well as a more comfortable environment for the firefighters to train in. The facility is also DDA compliant. Infrastructure for future PV panels was incorporated into the design, allowing the client to add the panels to the building. We are now working with the client to install the PV panels by the end of 2023.
