£12m Newbridge fire & rescue training centre breaks ground
The Scottish Fire & Rescue Service have broken ground on a £12m training centre at Newbridge on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

Robertson Construction are now on-site with an expectation that the Smith Scott Mullan Architects design will be operational by March 2019.

Alasdair Hay, chief officer of the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service, said: “There can be no clearer indication of our commitment to both our communities and our firefighters than the significant investment in this new training facility.

“This is a momentous occasion as we continue to move forward in harnessing the very latest firefighting technologies.”

Designed to simulate vehicle pile-ups the facility will provide specialist training for up to 1,600 firefighters in urban search and rescue, including the early identification of risks.

@#2 - that's what happens when you play with Scape. That gang have been consistently churning out utter dross for longer than I care to remember.

Unbelievably they have managed to make the PFI era look like a golden architectural period!
