National Site Awards 2010 - Bronze Award for Harold Hill Fire Station
On 27th April 2010 Lakehouse was awarded a Bronze CCS Award for Harold Hill Fire Station, just three months after it was completed. The site was particularly commended for the high standards reached in the categories of Considerate, Environment, Cleanliness, Respectful, Safe, Responsible, and Accountable, and for its exceptional achievements in the category of Neighbour. Judges said that the site was a credit to Lakehouse and to the site team.
The £2.1million project was undertaken for the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA), which runs the London Fire Brigade, and started in May 2009. The project has seen three existing light industrial units at the Falcon Business Centre, Harold Hill, transformed into a 21st century fire station - the first fire station to be built in London for twelve years and a mere stone’s throw from Lakehouse’s headquarters in Romford.
The building is designed to minimize its carbon footprint, making efficient use of energy and water. It can also be adapted to house more fire engines if necessary or altered for other uses. Low carbon technologies at the new station include photovoltaic panels, solar heating panels, rainwater harvesting system, combined heat and power unit, and heat recovery unit.
Harold Hill Fire Station was awarded Havering Council’s Sustainable Design and Construction Award, in September 2009.
