Scottish Fire Service workshop Dundee

Keeping emergency vehicles ready at all times

The new facility was needed to meet the geographical and logistical demands of keeping SFRS’ northern fleet of HGV and light vehicles serviced to the highest possible standard.

It will join forces with an existing centre in Inverness to ensure communities are protected in times of emergency.

It will oversee the service and repair of 348 vehicles from across 164 stations across the north of Scotland, including Shetland, ensuring the SFRS can respond to emergencies whenever and wherever they arise.

A modern facility

The project comprised the conversion of a 2040m2 single-storey light industrial unit to create modern workshops and support facilities.

The workshop is fitted with seven vehicle inspection pits for fire engines, three hydraulic lifts for light vehicles, a mechanical parts store and ancillary rooms for remote works.

It represents a £3.75m investment in total that brings together 35 staff – including experienced mechanics, and ICT and property specialists.

The new facility also includes offices, accommodation for ICT support functions, a meeting room, welfare facilities and locker rooms.
