Testimonial
“Re-Format have worked with Dorset Fire and Rescue Service as Architects and Lead Consultants through the options appraisal, feasibility and pre-construction design stages of our ground breaking Weymouth Fire Station project. This scheme is for an absolutely unique operational fire station; a combination of fire prevention centre and community facility. Re-Format led in interpreting the brief, matching it to a design that had to be “iconic” from the outset and reconciling their proposals with our budget by a positive contribution to both the cost planning process and the wider development appraisal. Re-Format’s commitment, attention to detail and drive for excellence have been apparent throughout their involvement. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
