The scope of works included the construction of a new two level, two bay facility inclusive of a basement car park with rear ramped entry access.

Extensive training facilities and amenities were specified, including an outdoor training/drill yard over the basement, equipment storage, dispatch, open office and administration area, multi-purpose room, meals and mess area with covered courtyard with BBQ, gymnasium, dry room, change rooms, shower area and accommodation for eight MFB staff.

Practical Completion was achieved in July 2018.
