Building Engineering was engaged by Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) in January 2017 to facilitate the construction of a new, state-of-the-art fire station within an existing MFB compound at 1721 Malvern Road.

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.

Additional areas include a gymnasium, dry room, change rooms, shower area, and accommodation for eight MFB staff.

Practical Completion was achieved in July 2018.
