We have acquired more fire stations and ambulance make ready hubs than any other regional property advisor.

Overview

We are Emergency Services property specialists and have been involved in notable pioneering estate transformations which include: the complete transformational change of West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust with their ‘make-ready’; the largest genuine collaboration agreement on behalf of Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service in respect of their new 70,000 sq ft headquarters with Derbyshire Police; and acquiring probably more fire stations in the last ten years than anyone else in the UK.

The team also have experience in valuing Fire and Ambulance Stations, for both Accounts and Insurance purposes, for a number of Fire Authorities and NHS Trusts.

We have recently acted on behalf of West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust in their Transformational Change, which amounted to the disposal of the surplus estate and the acquisition of their make ready hubs. Furthermore, we have recently acted on behalf of Derbyshire Fire Authority in acquiring their new headquarters building, in partnership with Derbyshire Police, in what is possibly the UK’s largest partnership arrangement between two emergency services.

In addition, our Business Rates team have also successfully saved hundreds of thousands of pounds for a number of Fire Authorities which is an area that is often overlooked.
