BDP, Old Kent Road fire station
Architect working in consortium with Kier on PFI scheme
BDP has been appointed to renovate nine fire stations across London as part of a £57 million PFI programme.
The London practice is part of a consortium led by Kier, selected by the London Fire Brigade.
Stations at Dagenham, Dockhead, Leytonstone, Old Kent Road, Orpington, Plaistow, Purley and Shadwell will be rebuilt on their existing sites, while a new site has been chosen for Mitcham.
Andy Hickmott, assistant commissioner at the London Fire Brigade, said: “Some of our fire stations are over 100 years old and are simply not fit for modern purposes.
“These stations need to be brought up to date, and this project demonstrates our continuing commitment to maintaining the world-class fire and rescue service that Londoners have come to expect.”
Work will start in June 2013.
