The building of a new fire station and safety centre in Lymm was part of a comprehensive plan to improve response times across Cheshire, Halton and Warrington.
International Timber was approached to supply cladding for the fire station, which was finished with translucent coatings, after the new build was undertaken by the North West Construction Hub.
Cladding is ultimately a covering or coating on a structure or material to reinforce the primary layer, ensuring even temperatures, protection against weathering and an improved overall look.
The plan, which involved the building of five new stations, was subject of a widespread public consultation.
The new fire station houses a number of specialist vehicles due to its close location to the motorway network on Cliff Lane, Lymm.
The Safety Central will deliver educational programmes that aim to reduce accidental deaths and injuries from fire, at home, on the road and in the community. This will help the Service fulfil its statutory duty to prevent fires and other emergencies, as well as supporting work towards the wider health, wellbeing and community safety priorities of local communities.
A spokesperson for International Timber said: “It’s really important for us to be involved in projects like this as it showcases our high-quality products, and gives us the opportunity to highlight the importance of timber in construction.”
