The new-build Fire Training Facilities and Administrative Headquarters Building formed part of a two-phase development for the Cleveland Fire Brigade – reflecting their determination to amalgamate all of the non-operational facilities of the Cleveland Fire Authority into a singular site.
In total, the overall development was planned to provide a carefully-designed relationship between the building form and the landscaping to ensure that all of the Client’s security requirements were fulfilled, whilst also providing a welcoming and safe environment for all of the site’s visitors and end-users. This was key to the development’s success and helped contribute, heavily, to the authorisation of public access into the site for the use of the high-quality leisure facilities. This, in turn, supported Hartlepool’s vision and regeneration priorities – cementing the building’s position as a true beacon of the community.
With a complex brief to adhere to, Bond Bryan were able to create a building both unique in its varying forms and highly significant to its dual functions.
Factory 2050 is the UK’s first fully reconfigurable assembly and component manufacturing facility for collaborative research.
