New Station at Winchester for Hampshire Fire & Rescue

Bond Brick completed the new Winchester Fire Station for the Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service. The station, located in Easton Lane, Winnal, replaces the old station at North Walls which had been home to Winchester fire service for 74 years.

The Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire Dame Mary Fagan unveiled a plaque and 150 guests attended. The new station enables fire and rescue appliances to attend incidents on the M3 faster than previously possible.

Chief Officer John Bonney said: 

“We are extremely pleased with the end result. Winchester fire station is a tangible demonstration of the progressive nature and commitment of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.”

“We are hoping the building is going to be certified as ‘excellent’ by BRE Environmental Assessment Method. This is the world’s most widely used environmental assessment method for buildings, setting the standard for best practice in sustainable design. We are also supporting Winchester District Strategic Partnership’s High Quality Environment Group and this station represents part of our contribution to the important work of making Winchester and Hampshire a thriving low carbon economy. This station is a striking example of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service’s commitment to ‘going green’.

Rick Bond, Managing Director of Bond Brick commented “This is another landmark build for the emergency services and we are delighted to have delivered our element of the works on time and within budget”.
