1 North West Fire & Rescue Services PFI Project Colin Schofield Project Manager Tony Clarke Seymour Harris Architecture on behalf of Balfour Beatty Damian Poyzer Ferguson Brown

2 Background Largest UK FRS building project Joint Project Cumbria, Lancashire & Merseyside FRS 16 sites Economies of scale

3 Background Buildings in poor state of repair Lack of investment No community facilities Costly to maintain Energy inefficient Authorities responsibilities Southport Fire Station

4 Background Private Finance Initiative Competitive Dialogue Output Specification Environment v Affordability Selected Bidder - Balfour Beatty Fire & Rescue

5 Output Specification Sustainable consumption & production BREEAM Climate change Natural resource protection Sustainable communities Air source heat pump Solar hot water collector Green Roof BREEAM

6 Output Specification Travel/location Water Waste Energy Procurement Biodiversity Climate Change impact Social impact

7 Introducing Sustainability into UK fire stations Introduction –Significance of Fire Authority estate in contributing to U.K sustainability agenda Size of estate, condition of existing estate, new estate –The Fire Authoritys agenda to meet its responsibility Policy, targets, dates, timeframe, tools for putting policy to practice –Our experience Application of experience from NWFS

8 Sustainable Design Drivers –Fire Authority - Output specification BREEAM EPC rating –National, Regional, Local Planning Authority 10% LZC, at least 10% of total energy demand to be met by on site renewable energy or low carbon sources Specific LZC preferences technologies (Wind turbine CHP PVs Bio Mass) –Industry Best Practice (now setting targets) Carbon Trust Ltd: better than or equal to 385 kwh/m2/p.a (fossil fuel) and 55 kwh/m2/p.a. (electricity) The community fire stations and other associated new accommodation, other than temporary accommodation must aim for a target of excellent BREEAM, or equivalent, rating. A BREEAM rating which is less than very good will not be acceptable to NWFRS. North West Fire and Rescue Services PFI Project, Output Specification, Volume 3, FINAL VERSION

9 Design to Meet the LZC Challenge Building design Optimum levels of thermal insulation. U-values better than minimum design limits included in Part L. Self closing devices on external doors. LZC Technology choice Aero-thermal heat pumps full variable refrigerant volume (VRV) system combining the benefits of the Aero-thermal heat pump with ceiling mounted fan coils. Variable Speed Drives (VSDs) Heating, ventilation and cooling Building Energy Management System (BEMS) EC/DC fan motors where practical Ventilation heat recovery units North West 10% LZC

10 Lighting high frequency control gear Daylight and occupancy sensing External lighting daylight and time control. Control equipment flexible user controls with set-back function time scheduling functions Time and occupancy based controls Energy Monitoring BEMS Set, monitor, and report against targets for energy use Design to Meet the LZC Challenge

11 Rating Targets North West Very Good rating minimum across all sites. Excellent rating at three sites (one for each authority) ( Other fire PFIs requiring excellent across all sites, looking for Outstanding as added value) New Fire Stations criteria BREEAM

12 Key BREEAM Impacts Consultation Ecology and Land Use - Bio Diversity - best use of land - amenity areas - Green roofs – Blackburn Materials –LCA –Robust –Suppliers –Site waste management plan (Green Guide to Materials)

13 Additional to BREEAM and % LZC Fire Authority requirements Electric car charging points (NWFS) Cycle requirements (NW) Local Authority Sustainability statements (20% new target) Energy statements Travel Plan Cycle schemes Inclusion of habitat development Green Roof (Blackburn) »Flood »Ecology

14 Balancing the Challenges Conflicts can arise between requirements 1. Balance between natural ventilations & acoustics - noisy city centre sites - air quality - noise - combination of open-able Windows & mechanical ventilation 2. Material Choices - ease of maintenance verses technology choice examples

15 3. Space conflicts - bio diverse roof / photovoltaic - competition for roof space 4. Bio mass boilers - space for storage - NW air sourced heat pumps 5. Affordability - separate issue but potentially the greener you are the more experience the scheme can be. 6. Pedestrian / Cycle access egress

16 Closing statement It is always a challenge but…. A community fire station for the 21st century you can do it it is affordable it doesnt affect design quality a few before afters
