Blue Light experience – Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service Berkshire
Ridge has extensive experience of working in the blue light sector for numerous fire authorities, including Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS), Wiltshire and Dorset and Surrey Fire Service.
Ridge has been working with RBFRS since 2016 and it has been a Framework partner since 2017, including providing a large new fire station in Theale. Our multidiscipline teams are delivering the complex solutions necessary on this challenging site, including flood risk, geotechnical and traffic and transport consultancy services.
The team are also in the construction phase of a new fire station in Crowthorne, providing a full multidiscipline offering to provide a new build facility on the existing site.
In addition, we are working with the fire service to plan and set out a 10-year capital projects delivery plan, including some collocation schemes with partner police and ambulance services.
10-year Capital Projects Programme
Ridge also delivered Hungerford Tri-service fire station, which was the first in a RBFRS program of redevelopment, and has set the benchmark for the client’s corporate initiative to place fire stations at the heart of communities and to provide 21st century facilities.
