We are pleased to share that we’ve been named architects on the scheme for the new fire station in Kilkenny, Republic of Ireland.
The new station will facilitate improved turnout times in response to incidents and is anticipated to serve staffing and community needs for the next forty years.
Having identified the need for increased space, Kilkenny Fire & Rescue services are replacing the existing building to provide improved efficiencies within modernized facilities. The constraints of the existing site meant that there wasn’t enough flexibility for increased space to comfortably house more vehicles and staff.
Steven Lennon, Head of Emergency Services, attended the launch event for the new station on 19th December. He commented:
“I’d like to express our delight at winning the project and supporting the Fire Service in delivering this key piece of community and life safety infrastructure for Kilkenny and the surrounding areas.”
More project information will be released in due course.
Kilkenny County Council signing of contracts being awarded to winning consortium led by HLM Architects to design the new fire station for Kilkenny City Fire Brigade (KK11) and headquarters staff for Kilkenny Fire Authority.
