London Fire Brigade (LFB) procured 9 PFI fire stations from Blue3, a Kier development team specialising in ‘blue light’ emergency services buildings. BOOM Collective have been responsible for seeing the sustainable engineering aspects of the project, from design, through construction and into operation, as a facilitator of the BSRIA Soft Landings framework.
Phase 2 PFI Fire Stations, (Dagenham; Leytonstone; Dockhead; Shadwell; Purley) have each been awarded BREEAM “Outstanding” at Design stages and are being led through the construction stages to ensure they achieve Post Construction BREEAM “Outstanding” certification.
The design challenges surrounding daylight, energy and water consumption necessitated detailed studies from very early stages of design all the way through to pioneering during procurement and whole life cost analysis. BOOM took a proactive role in engaging the design and construction team throughout this process, including undertaking a lesson’s learnt from early phases.
