The new Spring Street Central station replaces the outdated Worship Street station, providing a new training hub, meeting accommodation, high specification gym and rest areas. The station is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week so required sleeping accommodation for four watches, each with six crew members. One of the challenges faced was, as the station is situated in the heart of the city in a high traffic flow area, it was essential to the design that multiple entrance and exit points were incorporated to enable the crews to avoid congested traffic and intern speed up response times. This was key as many significant historic buildings, museums and Hull Royal Infirmary fall within the station's catchment area.

“The Jefferson Sheard team performed well over the duration of the contract. They were proactive in helping resolve any issues on site and responded to contractor RFI efficiently.
It is generally thought that Jefferson Sheard provided excellent value for money – to an extent that it would be fair to say they went over and above for MACE and the client (Humberside Fire and Rescue).”
