Swanky new images of Dagenham fire station have been released letting people take a sneak peek at the environmentally friendly revamp.
The new building is due to be ready in November 2015 and is currently under refurbishment.
It will feature a six-storey training tower, more firefighter accommodation including better provision for female crew-members, briefing and meeting rooms for public hire and kitchen and gym facilities.
The year-long redevelopment work began in November 2014 and crews and fire engines have been split between Barking, Harold Hill and Romford stations since the work began.
Thanks to a £51.1million government grant Dagenham is one of nine stations across the capital undergoing similar work.
Dockhead, Leytonstone, Mitcham, Purley, Old Kent Road, Shadwell, Plaistow and Orpington stations are also under construction as part of the rebuilding programme.
All the new stations will minimise their impact on the environment by including innovative energy efficiency features.
They will achieve a minimum “excellent” Building Research Establishment Environment Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating.
