OMI SELECTED FOR ROCHDALE FIRE STATION TRANSFORMATION

Following a competitive selection process OMI Architects’ team have been selected to advance the Greater Manchester Fire Service Museum project to an HLF Stage II submission. Key stakeholders in the project include Rochdale Council and Greater Manchester Fire Service Museum Trust.

The project will restore and adapt the 1930s Art Deco Mulcure Road fire station to create a fully accessible museum with new visitor services and a café. The project will provide a permanent home for the Greater Manchester Fire Service Museum collection and archive. This coupled with a lively engagement programme will bring the collection to hard-to-reach audiences, young people and the local community.
