Redditch Fire and Rescue Hub
West Mercia Police Crime Commissioner

Speller Metcalfe have been confirmed as the approved contractor on the new Redditch Police Fire and Rescue Hub.
The disused brownfield site located next to the existing fire station will be transformed to make way for a brand new £17.50 million, three-storey building.
The new site will improve delivery services for local residents, strengthen joint response to emergency incidents and replace outdated provision.
Predominantly an administrative hub, both services will share a range of amenities including a kitchen, gym, toilets, conference and meeting rooms, with additional fire service facilities consisting of a new accommodation unit, drill tower and appliance bay for three service vehicles.
Externally, the site will house a large car park to serve both staff and site visitors.
The project will include a number of energy efficient features including air source heat pumps and EV car charging points.
Designed by Bond Bryan Architects, the project will be built to the highly sustainable BREEAM Good standard.
The scheme was procured through the PAGABO medium works framework.
