Armagh Fire Station, Armagh

Armagh Community Fire Station was designed to align with the latest thinking in sustainable development, be environmentally sensitive and incorporate the latest developments in design and technology required of a modern and energy efficient Fire and Rescue Station. Located within a restricted site, the station design takes advantage of the considerable site constraints. The winged plan is used as a device to zone the external spaces of drill yard, staff and visitor car parking and determine distinct access/egress points for general and emergency use. Internally the wings create separate accommodation for community and fire fighting services linked by a central core. Armagh Community Fire Station is an exemplar design introducing an original approach with innovative solutions in partnership with the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service.

Armagh Community Fire Station has been described by the Chief Fire Officer of Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service as, “a benchmark for all future Fire Stations.”
