Builder sought for Lancs fire & rescue HQ

Simon Donohue

Bids are being sought for a construction contract to build a new headquarters for Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service in Chorley.

The contract, worth between £5m and £12m, includes construction of a new three storey building to replace the authority's current buildings at Washington Hall.

Detailed planning approval has already been gained for the construction of a number of buildings on the site, including a new fire station and fleet garage.

A tender document states: "The next stage of the site development is to construct a new headquarters building which will facilitate the relocation of staff from various locations and enable the demolition of current buildings at Washington Hall."
